Department of Faith Formation

The Department of Faith Formation establishes a teaching structure for consistent teaching throughout the diocese.

When fully implemented, the department will form a hierarchy made of the Director of Faith Formation at the institute, Master Catechists in each deanery, Directors of Religious Education and Faith Formation Leaders, and Catechists at parishes. The department develops curricula for faith formation and produces content in written, audio, and video form.

“The reality of our time is that the family is fractured and undermined in serious ways in the day-to-day course of society. Underlying this is a fracturing of the human person that results in great confusion in each of the seasons mentioned above. The message of Jesus Christ is the antidote to this confusion and fracture.” 

—Bishop Joseph Strickland, Constitution on Teaching (15)
