Comprehensive Catechetical Program for Parishes

Paul VI offers a subscription plan to parishes. Instead of paying individual tuition per student, the parish can pay an annual subscription, based on size of the parish and school, which covers the cost for any member of the parish or teacher employed by the parish school to take Paul VI courses at no additional charge.

For one annual subscription the parish receives the following services:

  • School Teacher Religious Education Certification
    • All school teachers employed by the parish school may take as many Paul VI certification courses as they choose.
  • P.S.R. Teacher Certification
    • All Parish School of Religion teachers may take as many courses as they wish.
  • Online Catechism Certificate
    • Any registered member of the parish may take a two year series of online courses covering the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church.
  • Other Adult Education Courses
    • All Paul VI courses are available to any registered member of the parish. Parish members may take any of the college-level scripture, doctrine, morality, spirituality or other courses offered. Courses are available online and at parish locations conveniently located around the archdiocese. 

Current parishes on the subscription plan include: All Saints--St. Peters; Assumption--O'Fallon; Holy Infant; Immacolata; Immaculate Conception-- Dardenne; Incarnate Word--Chesterfield; Our Lady of Guadalupe; St. Catherine Laboure; St. Clare of Assisi; St. Cletus - St. Charles; St. Dominic Savio – Affton; St. George – Gardenville; St. Gerard Majella; Sts. Joachim & Ann; St. Joseph--Cottleville; St. Margaret Mary Alacoque; St. Raphael the Archangel
