Thank you for teaching the faith in your parish or school! Archdiocesan certification is a great way to grow in your knowledge and faith so you can better teach your students. The revised archdiocesan catechist certification process includes elements to help catechists/teachers know the faith, live their faith and be able to effectively teach it to others. Prior Hearts Aflame certifications remain valid, though those certified are encouraged to continue their faith formation; those who began the certification process before December 2, 2012 need only to complete their remaining courses through Foundations to be certified. Courses are also taught live in parishes. Full information on catechists certification is here.
The Archdiocese of Washington has approved the following courses to fulfill the content learning requirements in the corresponding areas.The completion of the five online courses listed below will give the user a Level 1 Certificate of Completion. The courses can be accessed below.
