FCC Relaunch 

Come and see our new platform for delivering Diocesan Foundational Catechetical Certification (FCC) courses: the Franciscan University of Steubenville Catechetical Institute's Franciscan at Home. This new platform will vastly improve our ability to deliver quality formation to catechists, Catholic school teachers, administrators and others.

Thanks to funding by the Annual Bishop's Appeal and Catholic Foundation, there is NO CHARGE to attend, however, we do need an accurate headcount to have enough seating, materials and even more importantly, lunch!  Thank you for registering before August 16.
