Catechist and Diaconal Vocations Program offers on-line access to new courses

CHICAGO, IL [MW Diocese Communications] -- Following trials with two Old Testament class groups and multiple locations, the Midwest Diocesan Catechist and Diaconal Vocations Program will now offer participation in larger classes through internet connection for those who do not have a local cadre of fellow students, or who do not have a local instructor.  This increases the number of options available for instruction in cases where there is no local instructor for a certain area of study: either condensed sessions with a visiting instructor or the new online connection.  While the internet connections are not always ideal, it allows the students to have a greater participation in the full-format seminars.

The next class session available through this format will be the Milwaukee sessions of the Spirituality class which, ideally, initiates the curriculum cycle of 7 courses in the Diocesan Program.  These begin on February 9th.  If you wish to attend, please notify Fr. Elijah Mueller, the Program Director and instructor for this course at 312-714-9775 or frelijah@uchicago.edu.  A printable flyer is available here.

The Midwest Diocese Catechist & Diaconal Vocation Program looks to help local parishes and Deaneries within the diocese to set up high quality, rigorous continuing education programs to train men and women to assist in parish and deanery ministries.  Additional program information can be accessed at http://www.midwestdiocese.org/catechistdiaconalprogram.html or by clicking here.
