INSTITUTE FOR LAY ECCLESIAL MINISTRY AND SERVICE:
THE ART OF FORMING THOSE CALLED TO MINISTRY
The Archdiocesan Parish Ministry Formation program provides comprehensive pastoral formation for those who currently serve or seek to be involved in ministries and services in the Church. These courses seek to ensure that parish ministers have a foundational knowledge and understanding of the teachings of the Catholic Church. The Parish Ministry Formation program builds upon our previous rich program.
Parish ministers, while learning the basis of their faith, ultimately form their conscience to positively affect their ministerial planning for their specific areas of ministry and service.
