This is Dr. Bob Schihl’s adult faith formation distance education teaching site. This ministry started at Saint Gregory the Great Catholic Church in Virginia Beach as an online access to in-depth instruction on Catholic adult formation topics.

The courses are designed not only to be interesting and informative in themselves, but to also become for you a trial experience to study on-line. You will see how easy it is to study by yourself, at your own pace, when you have time, with no tuition costs, no classes to go to, no texts to buy, no examinations and no grading (remember when you once thought you would learn more at school if you could study what you wanted and do it by yourself?) This is that opportunity. Give us a try.

Each course consists of one or more videos and a PowerPoint slide presentation. Some courses also have documents.

When Dr. Schihl taught in person, he usually created classes in a two-hour time frame (with or without a break!). To create the online presentations in two hour blocks was unreasonable. So now the presentations are divided into shorter units. It is also convenient for you to be able to stop the presentation (e.g., to take a phone call, answer a doorbell, etc.) and then to start it and continue. It is also very convenient for you to replay a portion of the presentation or re-view the entire presentation.
