​​​​​​​​​​​​​Office of Formation for Discipleship​

Our Vision is to assist lay people to come to the fullness of their vocation.

Our Mission is to provide systematic faith formation that helps people understand their Catholic faith more clearly and live it more eagerly. 

Our Mandate is to assist parishes to nurture the faith formation of adults, affording them an understanding of what the Church teaches and a vocabulary with which to explain their faith and reach out to others.

Our Programmes include:

  • Workshops on Scripture, Catechism, Liturgy, Social Teaching of the Church and Prayer
  • Retreats in parishes during Advent or Lent
  • Training/Refreshers for:
    •  Liturgical Ministers (Lectors, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Ministers of Hospitality, Ministers of Music and Ministers of the Word with Children)
    • Catechists in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and Children (RCIC)
    • Lay Pastoral Visitors to the Sick
    • Ministers of Care
    • Bereavement Ministers
  • Online Catechist Formation Programme
  • Online Faith Formation

Our programmes are offered to parishes free of charge.  The pastor, or his delegate, should contact the office at 416-934-3400, ext. 523.
