Do I have to sit an exam? No. Each module concludes with a one-to-one session with one of the course leaders. In the meeting, you’ll have a chance to talk about what you’ve learnt and ask any questions that weren’t answered in the lecture.
Do I need to buy course material? No. We do recommend you have a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which is available free online.
Do I need to be Catholic to take part? No, all are welcome to explore the Catholic faith in this course.
Is the course difficult? Like any course, some elements will be challenging. That's why we have gathered a range of speakers who are experienced in simplifying difficult concepts in an engaging way. Plus, each session has a Q&A section where you can ask the speaker to clarify any concepts.
Can I take part if I'm not in the Archdiocese? Everyone is welcome to take part regardless of where you are based.
What if I miss a session? No problem, each session is recorded and available online the following day allowing you to catch up.
How do I log in to sessions? The course leader Sr Miriam Ruth will send you a link by email each week that you simply click to enter the session.
