Due to high demand we have added a new summer online course!

The Basic Catechist Formation Course is available in an online learning format through the Echoes of Faith program offered by RCL Benziger.  The non-refundable course fee is $75 per person.  The course is 12-weeks long and upon successful completion results in a California Catechist Certification sent at the end of the school-year in which the program is finished (July).

Echoes of Faith 3.0 is the most comprehensive Digital Learning Center available for catechist formation. The newly revised and fully interactive online design provides flexible learning and communication options for group members and leaders. Get complete access for one year with each paid subscription (individual or group) and start enjoying these features and benefits.

  • Formation and skills training on your schedule—work at your own pace
  • Fourteen modules that answer three essential questions new catechists ask: Who am I and what do I do? (Three Catechist Modules) What do I teach? (Five Theology Modules) How do I teach? (Six Methods Modules)
  • In-depth interviews by recognized experts in the catechetical field
  • New bonus interviews and enrichment articles to extend learning
  • Accessible on desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices

The next online BCFC course begins July 6, 2020.  The registration deadline is 6/29/2020 (or when class is full, whichever comes first).
