The Saint Francis de Sales School for Pastoral Ministry
The mission of the Saint Francis de Sales School for Pastoral Ministry is to form lay people to be “missionary disciples,” inspired and equipped to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world.
In response to popular demand, the Saint Francis de Sales School for Pastoral Ministry now welcomes alumni of the school to continue their faith formation at a discounted rate of 50%. Alumni will be able to take new courses that were not offered during their previous three-year tenure or repeat a course with a new instructor.
The Saint Francis de Sales School for Pastoral Ministry provides an integrative approach to faith formation. The School invites adults who are interested in deepening their spiritual/faith formation – but are unable to commit to the full 3-year program – to enroll in single courses that are of interest to them. The fee per-course is $120. Tuition assistance is available upon request.
