Catechetical Certification Program

The Archdiocese of Seattle is offering a 6-to 8-month Catechetical Certification Program (CCP) for parish staff, volunteers, adult learners, and parents of homeschoolers. This program provides the foundation for knowing, living, and teaching our Catholic faith.

The program promotes catechesis that is foundational, sequential and pastoral, to learn both the “what” and the “how” of authentically passing on the treasures of our Catholic faith. The program includes a series of classes presenting the Tasks of Catechesis and Methodology, along with a series of online videos from the Augustine Institute’s Symbolon program, whose content provides elements of how to know and live the Catholic faith.


Carlos Carrillo, director of Faith Formation from Seattle is currently setting up the Catechetical Certification Program in our regional parishes. It will be conducted at St. Ann on Saturdays. Each class is 3 hours for a total of 7 classes.

The Formation/Training classes include watching and studying videos corresponding to the Tasks of Catechesis and Methodology, attending a retreat, observing and preparing for teaching classes. Participants will receive a Catechetical Certification Certificate after the completion of the program.

Program cost is $75 per participant.

Class is open to all and please sign up with Monty 253-304- 4473
