School and Parish Programs
The Saint Clare Center provides a wide range of programs for Catholic parishes and schools.
the Mission is the designated/official program for the religious education
certification of Catholic school teachers in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
2,000 elementary and secondary school educators working at all of the Catholic
schools of the Archdiocese are participating in the program. Sustaining the
Mission provides a systematic, coherent curriculum, delivered “in the field” during
scheduled teacher in-service days.
The Faith Formation Team Training
program (FFTT) is a program designed for those ministering in Catholic elementary or
secondary schools in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
Teams are trained and formed to work with the
spiritual needs of adult colleagues and the ongoing need of Catholic schools to
foster healthy and informed Christian communities of educators. Participants learn how to effectively develop
a yearlong plan of adult formation for their school community.
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee, through its 2014 Synod, has
identified evangelization, adult faith formation, and the develop of leadership
among lay people as key parts of the mission of the church, and as urgent
priorities for the present and the future. Many parishes, though, feel they need support and partners
to help them in these key areas of mission.
The Saint Clare Center has experience and expertise in
developing lay leadership, and in helping parishes and schools plan for adult
formation and evangelization. Find out more about how we can collaborate with you.
Passing on our Catholic faith to the next
generation by serving as a catechist is a vitally important task. It is
also a wonderful opportunity to develop relationships with students, and to
grow in one's own faith. Like all lay ministers, catechists both need and
deserve high quality formation.
The Saint Clare Catechist Academy offers a
systematic program that provides a basic foundation of knowledge about our
Catholic faith and how to share it with others.
