The DCC is an online course for parents, catechists, grandparents or anyone wishing to know their Catholic faith more deeply. You will take a systematic journey through the Church’s teaching to understand your own faith in a more profound way.

Structure of the Course

Online study over 18 months with attendance at 6 non-residential study days. There is a balance of teaching, liturgy, social time and prayer at the weekends.

All the Units are accessed from a secured online site with some video talks leading you through each unit and use of the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Activities engage you with the material. Short written tasks (between 300-500 words) help you to sum up the key points which are then sent to your assigned tutor who comments and makes further suggestions.

You will be provided with regular online contact, will be able to study at your own pace and be given individual support throughout.
