Regional Ministry Formation Days

Formation for leaders and liturgical ministers in support of the Parish Year of the Eucharistic Revival

Through prayer, learning, and practice, participants will reflect on their personal participation at Mass, deepen their understanding of why we gather for worship, and become more mindful of how serving in a liturgical role invites them and others to living encounters with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Attendees will receive a copy of the book Participation of the Heart: Fostering Deeper Engagement in the Mass (GIA Publications, 2021) authored by the session presenter, Vicki Klima.


Pastor/Administrator plus others leading efforts for the Parish Year of the Eucharistic Revival Parish Year and those serving in liturgical ministries such as sacristan, greeter, musician, reader, extraordinary minister of holy Communion, etc. Up to eight people from each parish in the diocese may attend at no charge thanks to a grant from the Lay Education and Formation Endowment.
