Adult Faith Formation

The Archdiocese of Dubuque received a grant this year that provides free online learning for all parishioners of the different parishes in the archdiocese.  The archdiocese has joined with the Franciscan University’s Catechetical Institute in the quest to “forming those who form others.”

From this page ( you will be able to access the workshops they have developed to assist in your formation as you minister in the Church and your family.  There are several tracks from which you may choose from based on your ministry in the parish or if not engaged in “formal” ministry, but seek to deepen your own faith while striving to become a missionary disciple, you are welcome to participate in the workshops that are offered by the Catechetical Institute.

As you begin, be sure to click on St. John the Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon in the drop-down box asking for your parish.  If you have any questions email  Have fun learning.
