Archbishop Flynn Catechetical Institute

The Archbishop Flynn Catechetical Institute was founded in 2008 to provide ongoing faith formation for Catholic adults of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. There are now more than 1,700 graduates who are living out their faith in parishes, families and communities!

The mission of the Catechetical Institute is to further students' spiritual formation and deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith. The foundational course at the Catechetical Institute is Pillars: A Journey through the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The heart of the curriculum is based on the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and provides a systematic presentation of the Catholic faith.

The CI: Pillars Program is a two-year course. Students participate in four modules which focus on the Creed, sacraments, moral life and prayer. Each module includes two formative sessions. After completing all four modules, students receive a certificate of completion.
