Pastoral Formation



Pastoral Formation supports the mission of Evangelization by continuous formation of the laity employed by the Diocese, non-ordained religious contracted in service to the diocese; and, to some extent, clergy. Pastoral formation seeks to cultivate and support the mission of the Diocese of Charleston and the mission of the Church. Such support will be provided by planning curriculum and implementing courses, workshops, retreat days for diocesan personnel and parish staffs, as well as deacon continual formation. Various resources will be offered in the areas of spiritual, theological and pastoral formation. Reference to Sacred Scripture and Tradition, current magisterial documents and narrative theology will be employed
