Mentored In Christ: the power of mentored formation for catechetical ministry

Date: Friday, August 14th, 2020

Time: 9am - 4pm. 

Location: St Joseph Cathedral Undercroft

FLYER HERE

Too often catechetical leaders in parish communities feel ill-equipped to teach the faith and foster discipleship.  Many express a need for more training and formation in ministries they feel called to do.  Others desire a deeper sense of community and relationship as they seek to share the faith with others.  How can we provide quality formation to those in catechetical ministries in a way that is builds community and fosters supportive relationships in those called to form others in the faith?  Please join us as we explore the power of mentored formation in catechetical ministry.  Participants will explore the vital role that relationship and mentoring play in catechetical formation, and explore how the new Franciscan at Home online learning platform can help foster mentored formation using online learning and local mentoring.  This seminar is open to anyone serving in a catechetical role: DREs, catechists, Catholic School teachers or Administrators, youth ministers, RCIA leaders, clergy, and parents!


This event will be recorded and shared online at a later time if participants do not feel comfortable attending the in-person event.  This event is subject to cancellation should it be deemed in the health interests of those involved at that time.  Social distancing and sanitization protocols will be in effect.  Participants are STRONGLY encouraged to bring a mask to use particularly when social distancing may not be feasible.
