What is Echoes of Faith?

Echoes of Faith is a diocesan-wide dynamic, multi-faceted, formation opportunity for adult Catholics in Maine utilizing the online tools of Echoes of Faith Emmaus Edition (11 learning modules total). You can see the module descriptions here. Adults complete the online segments on their own, participate in a local or regional small discipleship group with a facilitator (in person or virtual) and diocesan opening and closing virtual gatherings for each learning module. The fee covers working through the material and practicing skills over 2 years.

Who is eligible to participate?

Any fully initiated (baptized, confirmed, sharing in holy Communion) adult Catholic 18 years of age or older living in Maine who wants to deepen their own relationship with Christ, practice skills for sharing the faith with others, and support the Church's mission of evangelizing and catechesis. Especially suited for those who currently serve as catechists or teachers and leaders of any aspect of parish or Catholic school religious education and faith formation.

When is it happening?

New modules start every one to two months in rotation scheduled through June 2024. Click to see the full schedule of modules with available registration points (updated August 11, 2022).

How do I participate?

Individuals will need to have internet access to participate in this program. While participants can use tablets or other smart devises, a computer works best with the online tools and video conferencing sessions. Participants may also use this program to work toward basic catechist certification (full Echoes of Faith program plus self-assessment and coaching from diocesan certification coordinator). All individuals will be assigned an online small group for discussion in the Echoes of Faith platform . Some parishes also provide in-person small group sessions to work through the modules (talk with your local parish about this possibility).

How much does it cost?

The fee is $20 / person for two years of access and community engagement ($300 value) with no additional fee for catechist certification ($500 value)

NOTE: Reduced cost to Maine participants is made possible through the Catholic Appeal, a grant from the Lay Continuing Education and Formation Endowment with the Catholic Foundation of Maine, and the partnership of RCL Benziger.
