Please do check your emails for the OEEC email blast - if you do not receive it, please let us know as soon as possible - for more information about upcoming webinars and virtual conversations, as well as resources and consulting available through the OEEC. 

Resources from the Archdiocese of Hartford

The OEEC has begun to curate two different menus of resources:
  • The first is for those who minister to adults in faith formation.
  • The second is for those adults seeking faith formation of their own.
These documents are continually being edited and expanded by the OEEC as we become aware of more resources and explore new options. We especially welcome any suggestions of resources, programs, or tools that you have experienced. 
Please contact us to share feedback!
