Effects of the coronavirus pandemic have caused several changes to the Ministry and Theology classes offered by the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis.

All previously scheduled online MAT classes for the spring are proceeding as usual, with no cancellations, evangelization officials said.

However, some MAT I and MAT II courses for the spring have been postponed, including the MAT I Sacred Liturgy class originally scheduled for March 10, 17, 24 and 31 at St. Jude School in Baton Rouge. New dates will be determined at a later date.

The MAT II Luke/Acts class originally scheduled for March 28 and April 4 at the Catholic Life Center will be completely online via webinar. The class will be taught during the same time periods when the instructor would normally have been teaching the classes in person. 

The MAT II Sacraments of Healing & Service class originally scheduled for March 28 and April 4 at the Catholic Life Center has been cancelled.

Also cancelled is the MAT II Pentateuch class, originally scheduled April 25 and May 2 at the Catholic Life Center.

Additionally, the Credible Catholic training opportunity originally scheduled for March 28 has been cancelled.

The Theology of the Body training set to take place April 25 is still open for registration. Adjustments will be made in the event of cancellation.

At this time, no changes have been made to the MAT summer schedule.
