Catholic Faith Technologies Offers Free Online Faith Formation During Pandemic

            Catholic Faith Technologies Offers Free Online Faith Formation


Catholic Faith Technologies wants to keep dioceses, parishes, schools, and families safe and productive during the pandemic. To serve those preventing the spread of the coronavirus by voluntarily isolating or entering quarantine, CFT is offering as many resources as possible to meet faith formation needs.

Jay Breeden, President of CFT adds, “While technology allows us to offer online learning, what we’re hearing from many parents and educators is they don’t know how to start! Our day to day business is helping dioceses, parishes, and schools to maximize engagement, faith formation, certifications, centralized communications, and more. And we can help you to achieve some of your formation and development goals now – for free.   To make that process easier and supply the support you need to deliver your formation learning, we’ve created a series of resource videos to help you get started.”


During this time, CFT is serving the faith by providing:

·         Grade School - FREE Faith and Life* courses through the generosity of Ignatius Press for those students soon celebrating Confirmation, First Communion, or enrolled in on-site religious education.

·         High School - FREE Didache* series courses and online materials in partnership with the Midwest Theological Forum that will allow students to continue their studies at home.

·         Adult Formation - FREE Faith Foundations* courses from My Catholic Faith Delivered.

·         Professional Development - We offer online courses brought to you by Catholic Distance University and network of partner dioceses, these are also available on My Catholic Faith Delivered or through your diocesan formation office.

·         For those schools already scheduled for NCEA IFG - ACRE or Adult Survey - testing, we are supporting rescheduling the assessment window or converting to the online version.

·         Baptism Matters, the new baptism-preparation program from RENEW International. Wherever you are sheltering, you will be able to view online modules for parish staff and baptism teams. Topics include baptism as initiation into a community; welcoming young parents in ways that invite them to become engaged in parish life; accommodating the diverse backgrounds and circumstances of our families; and focusing all parish activity on “mission” rather than “maintenance.”

Breeden continues, “During times like this, people turn to their faith. It is comforting and it helps to normalize their lives. To reduce disruption for students in faith formation and other others partaking in faith-based learning, we are glad to be able to provide sense of continuity through our online platform. Especially now, it’s the best way for us to continue our mission to serve the Church and we are so thankful to our partners for allowing us to bring these courses to you.”

Built for a higher purpose – And this is it!

CFT was built to help dioceses streamline and scale all mission-critical initiatives while creating touch points for each parish and school to maximize engagement, faith formation, certifications, centralized communications, and more. This mission is not one to be put on hold due to a global emergency. The very nature of our offering makes it possible to continue consistent communications, integrated learning, and community engagement without disruption.

Because CFT’s operations are not dependent on any single physical location, we can ensure continuity of service and access to online content no matter where you are.

If you have questions on any of these updates, we are always happy to hear from you and welcome the opportunity for a conversation –

* Courses offered free of charge through June 30, 2020 at which time access will expire.

Diocese of Jefferson City is Live!

The Diocese of Jefferson City is an ecclesiastical territory of the Roman Catholic Church in the state of Missouri.  The diocese consists of 38 counties in mainly rural northeastern and central Missouri. It also includes the urban areas of Columbia, as well as the state capital, Jefferson City. The diocese has 95 parishes, 40 schools, and serves 88,000 Catholics.

As a medium-sized diocese covering remote areas, having access to mobile technology was important for communicating and serving their community, teachers, and catechists. Recognizing the mixed quality of current catechist training, and struggling to coordinate programs that weren't as accessible as they would like, the diocese knew they needed an affordable online formation model.    More...

Weathering the Storm: The Diocese of Corpus Christi and Orlando Go-Live!

My Catholic Faith Delivered (MCFD) welcomes two new dioceses to the platform! Dioceses who demonstrated incredible determination to provide formation of the faith for today's learners. 

Both the Diocese of Corpus Christi and the Diocese of Orlando were looking for a way to offer consistent learning on demand: anytime, anywhere, from any device, all while tracking progress toward certification. They selected MCFD as their technology partner to achieve these goals. 

My Catholic Faith Delivered is the go-to Online Faith Formation Hub, an on demand technology solution for managing the learning life-cycle of your teachers and catechists. One single place for managing and tracking all your programs, both online and on-site. 

Unfortunately, the dioceses' online journeys were interrupted by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. As their priorities shifted to focus on their respective communities, parishes, parishioners and schools - they were challenged with communication interruptions, lack of internet and phones, and even difficulty in staffing day-to-day operations. Still, they remained committed to the process and determined to launch their new initiatives. MCFD, based in Kansas City, watched with empathy as the news covered the conditions in both locations. We have endless admiration for their dedication to their diocesan members and to moving forward with their new programs. Congratulations and welcome to the MCFD family! 

What does it take to start innovating your own process? First, identify your certification needs. Do you need a Certification Management System created from scratch, or are you looking to quickly create and update online records from years and decades of manually managed certifications?
