What is the format of the program?
Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained will be used as the basis. Sessions will be facilitated by a local facilitator and will include time for discussion and prayer.

What if I miss a session?
All participants will have online access to the videos to make up any missed sessions.

Is there a certificate of completion?
Yes, there is an online quiz available for each lesson.  Any participant who successfully completes all 10 quizzes will receive a "Certificate of Completion."  (Note: Two Symbolon lessons will be covered during each formation session.)

What if I am unable to pay the registration fee?
Please check first with your pastor to see if your parish may be able to assist.  If this is not possible, then please contact Liz Hoefferle at the Diocese of Duluth (218-724-9111).  Nobody will be turned away for financial reasons.

What materials should I bring?
A binder with the Participant Handouts will be provided for each registered participant at the first session. Please bring this binder each time.
