Upcoming Ministry Formation Centers

Due to the current COVID-19 situation and the uncertainty of on-site meetings, we have planned the 2020 ministry formation centers in an online platform. A Ministry Formation Center (MFC) is offered as the basic theological and ministry foundation Phase for Catechist and ministerial Certification, and is highly recommended for all catechetical leaders and ministry teams including RCIA, Liturgy, Evangelization, Adult Faith Formation teams and more. Any adult interested in learning more about their faith is welcome to participate.

"On the lips of the catechist the first proclamation must ring out over and over: 'Jesus Christ loves you; he gave his life to save you; and now he is living at your side every day to enlighten, strengthen and free you'..."

"En la boca del catequista vuelve a resonar siempre el primer anuncio: 'Jesucristo te ama, dio su vida para salvarte, y ahora está vivo a tu lado cada día, para iluminarte, para fortalecerte, para liberarte'..."
