MINISTRY FORMATION PROGRAM MISSION STATEMENT

WE BELIEVE
that all Catholics are called to ministry by Jesus.

WE BELIEVE
that the Sacrament of Baptism empowers us as disciples to share in the priestly, prophetic and servant roles of Jesus.

WE BELIEVE
that all ministers in a leadership capacity, in the Diocese of Lansing, are entitled to have their gifts developed through theological study, spiritual reflection, and the nurturing of pastoral skills.

THEREFORE
The Diocesan Department of Formation, in collaboration with other diocesan departments, Siena Heights University and Loyola University Institute for Ministry, will provide opportunities for ministers, both comissioned and diaconal, of the diocese to prepare themselves to fully participate as effective Catholic leaders in the Mission of the Church.
