The goals of the School of Christian Formation are four-fold:


  1. To nourish and challenge Catholics with a deeper personal understanding of their faith tradition
  2. To enable participants to bring this experience to their families, friends, places of work and Ministry
  3. To explore the Catholic tradition from our local context as a diverse Church with members of different cultural backgrounds and with varying ministerial needs.
  4. To situate our experience of faith, Church and ministry in light of the teachings and documents of the Second Vatican Council. The School of Christian Formation seeks to make its programming accessible to all persons in the diocese who are interested in learning more about their faith tradition.
