Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved by him, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly explaining the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)
In order to receive a certification from the Diocese of Venice, a series of classes must be completed. The classes are created by the Franciscan Catechetical Institute and offered online through the Franciscan at Home platform.
Each certification has three levels: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced. Each level consists of 12 individual classes. Generally, each class can be completed in 4-6 weeks if a workshop is done once a week. Students can move more quickly if they wish. After each class is completed, the student can move onto the next class. Students should be able to easily complete one level per year and complete the entire program for their certification in 3 years.
Each school or parish has volunteer mentors whose task is to accompany and support each student along the way. Through the relationship to a mentor the certification process can become a process of spiritual growth and discipleship.
Thanks to the generous support of your parishes and schools, there is no cost to the individual student for these classes.
