Our Vision and Mission

The Office of Formation for Discipleship is committed to cultivating a Church of grateful missionary disciples who actively encounter Christ in Word and Sacraments and share their God-given gifts in joyful service as living witnesses to Christ in the world.

We're here to…

  • Assist pastors, clergy, and lay leaders by sharing resources, fostering networks, and providing formation opportunities;
  • Support parish efforts by offering diocesan and regional formation opportunities for the lay faithful; and
  • Collaborate with various partners (such as religious orders, agencies, educational institutions, and lay movements) through consultations, information sharing, events, and initiatives.
