In-Services

The Education Vicariate In-Service is held five times a year to assist parish, school, and campus ministry leaders, teachers and catechists in creating a living sign of a dynamic faith. Focusing primarily on adults, these formation events aim not only to animate the spiritual life but also pragmatic skills for ministry.

Upon completion of all sessions, participants receive a Certificate of Ongoing Development and a Transcript description summarizing the contents of the learning experience.
