Planning. Forming. Collaborating

We invite those who teach the faith in our parishes and schools to this overnight formation experience.

This is not a spiritual retreat. Of course, we’ll pray together and offer some time for solitude and personal spiritual development. But, we are intentionally offering this as a professional development experience, to provide formation and resources to those who teach the faith in parishes and schools in the Diocese of Helena.

Date: Monday-Tuesday, August 14-15, 2023.

When: We will start at 4pm on Monday and conclude by 12noon on Tuesday.

Where: Legendary Lodge

Who: Parish- and school-based DRE’s, teachers, youth ministers, and catechists. We invite both those who are paid and those who are volunteers, whether you are responsible for directing an entire program (e.g. “Director of Religious Education”) or if you work with a single-grade. 

What: There are two primary goals: 1) provide time and space for participants, both in solitude and in collaborative small groups with colleagues, to plan their ministry year; and 2) provide formation for those who are responsible for teaching the faith, including providing and sharing various catechetical programs and resources.

Cost: Free!
