Empowering Parents as Teachers of Faith: A 3-Week Online Course

This course is for parents especially those with children in a Catholic School or parish religious education program. Parents, we want to help you understand your role as the primary faith educator of your children and provide some resources to help you fulfill your role. It is so easy for us parents to drop our children off at a parish religious education program or enroll them in a Catholic school and think we have done our job. In reality, the most important religious education happens at home. Parents, schools, and parishes are all important partners when it comes to educating and forming the faith of children.

About the course

The course includes short video presentations and a discussion board where parents can share ideas and learn from one another. We provide links to helpful resources. The course is based on any time learning. Each week, parents can log on at the times most convenient to them.
