Developing Lay Leaders and Supporting Parish Mission


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. We are happy to partner with parishes in offering any of the following programs:

  • From Spark to Flame: A consultation and planning process for evangelization and adult formation
  • In Mission Together: A retreat for parish leadership
  • Beyond Chocolate: A Lenten series on "Faith that Makes a Difference"
  • Scripture and Discipleship: A five session course on a Catholic approach to Scripture and key themes of the Bible
