During its nine years in operation, from 2006 to 2015, the mission of the Catholic Distance Learning Network was to provide certification in online teaching and learning to seminary and theological school faculty for the purpose of preparing them to offer courses online.
"Without fear we want to set out upon the digital
embracing its unrestricted navigation with the same passion
that for 2,000 years has steered the barque of the Church."
- Pope Benedict XVI
