For those who are interested in just attending the lay missionary formation program during the summer, a select number of openings will be available for Catholics who wish to deepen their understanding of the faith with a special emphasis on foreign missions.

The formation program runs June 23 - August 23 at St. Albert's Priory in Oakland, CA.

This is an intensive 9-week lay missionary training and formation program that aims to provide a solid foundation and understanding of our faith, missionary work, living in a foreign environment, important life skills, and region-specific issues, while continuing the discernment process for those interested in serving as Catholic lay missionaries in a foreign culture. The regional focus will be Asia.

Courses will be taught by both lay and religious at an academic level equivalent to the intellectual rigor and workload of a graduate studies program.

The program features approximately 250 hours of class time, plus Mass, prayer, praise & worship, fellowship, and community service activities.

Application deadline is May 30th.  Click here to apply!
