“So when he had washed their feet and put his garments back on and reclined at table again, he said to them, “Do you realize what I have done for you? ”    

– Jn. 13:12-14

Formation opportunities include presentations and workshops by diocesan staff and guest presenters, course offerings at St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry and the Instituto Pastoral Hispano, as well as participation in regional and national conferences.
