Franciscan At Home Catechetical Institute

The Diocese of Rockville Centre has partnered with the Franciscan at Home Catechetical Institute in order to provide formational opportunities via virtual learning.

This initiative provides free opportunities for both personal and professional enrichment to members of our parishes, schools, and other faith-based institutions. It is our belief that this opportunity will be a valuable resource in our continued pursuit of cultivating a culture of dramatic missionary growth for the Church on Long Island.

We encourage you to explore the different courses and tracks offered through this platform and engage the material with an open, lively, and reflective spirit.

To start using the Catechetical Institute, please set up your free individual account by selecting the option below for those whose institution is already registered. If your institution is not already listed, please email the Diocesan Office of Faith Formation for assistance. Please note, schools that are connected to parishes are listed with the parish [e.g., Church and Schools of St. Mary (Manhasset)]. Regional schools are listed separately from the parishes [e.g., St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Regional School (Bellmore)].

Once you are registered, you may peruse the offerings and begin individual workshops or start a certificate track. If you are participating in this program for professional enrichment, please follow the instructions of your institution and begin the directed tracks or courses.


The Catechetics Program at Franciscan University of Steubenville exists to prepare students to join the “army of catechists” called for by the late Pope Saint John Paul II, eager to help the Church in her mission of making all nations disciples of Jesus Christ. We combine a thorough study of Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and magisterial documents with training in proper and effective pedagogical techniques to help our students grasp the intelligibility and coherence of divine truths, and to pass them along faithfully.
