Other Opportunities to Learn

We also invite you to consider engaging in other educational offerings at the CAC. Online courses are media-rich learning opportunities based on the teachings of Fr. Richard and his spiritual lineage. Online courses are shorter in duration (six to ten weeks), are self-paced, and are entirely online. The exclusive content of our online courses provides learners a chance to continue their spiritual journey with others from around the globe, while seeking to be agents of positive change in the world. The CAC offers a growing catalog of courses throughout the year (no application necessary). Visit the “About CAC” page to learn of additional educational offerings.

The work of the Center for Action and Contemplation is possible only because of friends and supporters like you!
