Faith Formation

"Faith Formation" is infused in all programs and activities the Mission and Ministry Center provides. Through personal sacramental preparation, academic partnerships, discussions and dialogue, the Mission and Ministry Center is attentive to our Catholic heritage and tradition, each person’s faith and religious traditions, and those who are seeking support in their spiritual development.

The area of Faith Formation in the Mission and Ministry Center provides a focus on the sacramental preparation process, academic partnerships, and ecumenical and interfaith dialogue.
