On-line Study Options

The Echoes of Faith series has fifteen on-line training options. Below is a list of these with the number of hours offered in each dimension for each course. The diocese is covering the cost of these courses for you. So if you like to study on your own time and are willing to work toward certification in this manner, we are happy to assist.
