Diocesan Institute

for Catechetical and Pastoral Formation

The Diocesan Institute for Catechetical and Pastoral Formation exists to provide a program of academic and pastoral formation for Catholic laity interested in service to the Church and personal enrichment.

The Institute will assist laity in their life-long journey of formation, growth and service by deepening their understanding of scripture, theology and authentic spirituality. This process of formation seeks to develop their skills and abilities in order to become more efficacious signs of Christ’s presence among all of God’s people.
