About the Leadership Institute

The Diocesan Leadership Institute will serve as the headquarters for formation for all those who serve in ministry in our parishes and schools. Through a combination of online learning, face to face workshops, and independent study, the Institute will offer creative opportunities for ministry personnel to learn more about the Catholic faith and discover new ways to shape the next generation of disciples in Fairfield County.

In addition, the Institute will serve as a clearinghouse for resources for those in ministry and a virtual library for anyone who wishes to learn more about the Catholic faith, regardless of the role one might choose to play in spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Something for Everyone

While the Institute’s courses will be required for some and open for everyone, specific resources are being created for a variety of age-specific and role-specific individuals. Imagine:

  • Being able to find resources that help you as a Catholic parent or grandparent.
  • Being able to find useful tools to help engage the young people you serve.
  • Learning more about the ways you can be involved in the life, mission, and ministry of the parish you attend.
