  1. Joe, I enjoyed your webinar the other night on being an adult catechist. I wonder if you are aware of the Certificate for Adult Faith Formation, available online from the University of Dayton. As part of the that certificate we use Jane Regan book…Toward and Adult Church. Its a seven course process with a goal of preparing adult for ministry with adults. I could send you more information if you would like. We are always looking for more ways to get the information out to people. The only requirement is to take the three week seminar on OHWB from Dayton. Hope to hear from you. Peace Dr. Barb

    • Thanks, Dr. Barb! Yes, I am familiar with the U of Dayton online programs and have plugged them in the past on my blog…great opportunities for catechists to take advantage of. Keep up the great work.

  2. I enjoyed all sessions Adult was viewed as rerun; I would like to receive certificate for all sessions. Thank you very much. Norma Bertrand, Norwalk, California 90650
