Since 2016 the Diocese of Karonga partnered with the University of Dayton in Ohio to take on line faith formation courses as a way of building capacity for catechists and some of employees in the Pastoral Commission and all relevant stake holders that help in faith formation in the Diocese. Since the agreement was signed, ten people; that included Pastoral Commission employees and Catholic teachers have benefited from the partnership. The beneficiaries included the Catechetical Methodology Advisors that work in Parish, The Catechetical Material production Coordinator and Catholic teachers from St Joseph The worker and St Marys Parishes.
The first course entitled “Images of Jesus” analyses the Human and Divine natures of Jesus, the Christological controversies and biblical foundations of this hypostatic union to mention just a few.
“ I am indebted to Karonga Diocese for this partnership with University of Dayton” said Thokozire Nkhoma “ I have learnt a lot of things in this course that will help be teach better the faith to the youth and Sunday School Children” She concluded. Another set of participants have just enrolled for the August cycle.
