The Journey Begins...

 The Archbishop Harry J. Flynn Catechetical Institute:

A faith-formation resource for Catholic adults of the Archdiocese 

The Archbishop Harry J. Flynn Catechetical Institute is an ongoing formation resource for Catholic adults of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis who wish to deepen their knowledge of the Catholic faith and further their spiritual formation. 

In essence, the Catechism is seen as the road map for the journey in faith, with each module of the four-module program focusing on one of the four pillars of the Catechism:

Creed:  The Story in Miniature
Sacraments:  The Blessing Revealed and Communicated
The Moral Life:  Fulfillment in Beatitude
Prayer:  The Blessing Given and Received
