Watch and discuss a recorded webinar at a priest support group, deanery meeting or with your leadership team. Suggested topics include addressing cybersex in the confessional and in spiritual direction, burnout, healthy boundaries, Internet pornography risks – even how to develop an effective fitness plan.


Retreats

Our spirituality webinars and webinars on topics such as mindfulness and embracing transition can be used as part of a retreat; for example, as an opening session or pre-retreat presentation to encourage reflection on the retreat topic.


Seminary and formation training

The Foundations seminary program, a comprehensive online formation curriculum for seminaries, is now available for purchase.

In addition, our webinars can be used as a classroom resource or provide extra support for individual students. Suggested topics include navigating challenging personalities, managing stress and mindfulness.

Formation faculty can benefit from webinars such as our Living Celibacy webinar series, Internet pornography, understanding behavioral addictions, healthy boundaries, and more.


Personal enrichment and formation

Participate in a live webinar or watch the recording when it is most convenient for you – day or night, any day of the week, as long as you have access to a computer and an Internet connection.
