The program takes two years. Classes meet each year from September through May on eleven Saturdays (6 hour sessions), and eleven Tuesday evenings (2 1/2 hour sessions). Classes include:
||Theology of Ministry
||Theology of Church
|| Retreat Days|
Most sessions involve some required reading for preparation and written reflections after the class has been completed. Periodic meetings with a Sponsor give candidates an opportunity fo fully assimilate and integrate their learning experiences. A Retreat is an important part of each year.
The overall formation process provides candidates with opportunities to grow through prayer, theological reflection, critical analysis and probelm solving, discussion and presentations by qualified adult religious educators using an Adult Model of education.
