Courses are open enrollment and offered to anyone who wants to learn more about the Catholic Faith.

Through our educational outreach we seek to promote a culture of affiliation. STEP courses actively encourage course participants to deepen their affiliation with the Church. Online courses faithfully present Church teaching and offer clarifications of doctrine. Course work helps learners find relevant resources, address commonly held misunderstandings, refine conceptual understandings, and clarify their expression of the Catholic faith.

Course work recovers what many have blurred or simplified over time. Course content renews their interest in a life of faith and service to God.
