About Catechetical Institute

The Catechetical Institute (CI) is a large-scale international outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville for ministry formation. CI was formally organized in 2015 and publicly launched in 2017 to serve Christ and his Church by forming those entrusted with the formation of others in any situation and ministry role — priests, deacons, religious, parents, parish and school leaders, teachers, catechists, and teams, whether professional or volunteer, from homes to diocesan hierarchies.

The relationship with Franciscan’s world-renowned Catechetics faculty is key to CI’s stability and charism. The importance and strength of the academic and practical dimensions coming together is fostered through CI being rooted both in the Franciscan Center for Evangelization and Renewal and the Catechetics/Theology academic programs at Franciscan University in various ways.

Along with CI, the Diocese of Covington seeks to support all those involved in the care of souls to grow in pastoral gentleness, faithful creativity, and bold confidence as they reach out to evangelize, accompany, and pass on the Catholic faith to others in the power of the Holy Spirit.
