Other Ways to Grow in Faith This Year

Pastoral Ministry Formation

Provides grounding in scripture and theology for the laity as they become increasingly responsible for the life and ministry of the Church. Pastoral Ministry Formation equips participants to fulfill the roles to which they are called by their baptism and for which their gifts and the needs of the times challenge them.  Click here for more information on the classes being offered this year.
