One recurring theme that was brought up at all of the listening sessions with Bishop Kopacz was intentional faith formation for catechist and other lay persons in pastoral ministries including adult faith formation, youth ministry, RCIA and pastoral care. As we move forward we are evaluating the programs, workshops and retreats provided by the diocese for professional development and catechetical training. The Pastoral Ministries Workshop is a useful tool to help form and inform Catholic lay leadership for your parish.
That being said, we are pleased to announce the details for the annual Pastoral Ministries Retreat which is from the afternoon of Sunday, June 4 at 3 p.m. through Monday, June 5th after lunch. The cost is $120 for this guided retreat. This covers 3 meals, one night lodging, and program expense. Participants may also choose to stay for an extended retreat or the Pastoral Ministries Workshop.
