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 Richard Rohr’s teachings and his spiritual lineage. Online courses are shorter in duration (six to ten weeks), self-paced, and 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.
