Formation for ministry

Formation is the intentional quality of our life that nourishes Christian maturity and faithfulness in ministry. It includes the vital tasks of education and addresses the growth of the entire person. Formation means cultivating availabilities to God – multiple availabilities to God, various ways of being present to God and working with God. It is the creation of an environment in which persons are stimulated to be available to God in ways that promote their own Christian maturity and faithfulness in ministry.

The formation web page highlights initiatives in education and formation in seminary life and parish ministry.
