About Catholicism 101
This eLearning mini-course is an engaging and efficient way to help young people unfamiliar with Catholicism learn the essentials of the Catholic faith. Cognitively, we know that middle schoolers are ready to think about faith in a deeper way. What if there was a way to engage their hearts and go deeper into the concepts of faith, while equipping your catechists to lead meaningful, deeper conversations with them, whether in-person or via video call?
Catholicism 101 answers this by first having young people engage in 12 interactive eLearning modules for self-directed learning, which then lead to catechist-led follow up sessions (via in-person or via video call).
These sessions empower catechists to engage in meaningful conversation and build relationships with young people through a simple 4-step process: to build community, connect the teaching to their lives through engaging discussion and activity that is video-call friendly, and by having an experience of prayer together.
This distance learning option is the perfect complement to any program, or one that can stand on its own, as it revisits the 4 Pillars of the Catechism.
