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.

Next In-Service: September 24

Dr. James Pauley, Professor of Theology and Catechetics at Franciscan University of Steubenville, will offer the presentation, “An Evangelizing Catechesis: Vision and Strategies.”  Due to the restrictions that we face in light of the pandemic, this in-service will be held virtually, via Zoom.
