The Division of Catechetical and Pastoral Formation works with parishes and schools of the Archdiocese to meet the evangelization mission priority of Renewing the Vision and realize the three goals of Catholic Evangelization set forth by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in Go and Make Disciples:

  • To bring about in all Catholics such an enthusiasm for their faith that as they live their faith in Jesus they freely share it with others.
  • To reach out and invite to the Catholic Church those who have no faith community and those who no longer practice their Catholic faith and to welcome those who seek full communion with the Catholic Church.
  • To foster Gospel values in our society, promoting the dignity of the human person, the importance of the family and to carry Good News through the works of justice, charity and peace.


Providing leadership and services in developing effective approaches to evangelization, adult and children faith formation, family catechesis, and marriage and family enrichment.
