New Lay Ministry Formation program, The Church Ministry Institute of Camden


Registrations are now being accepted for the Church Ministry of Camden, a new lay ministry formation available to Catholics in the Camden Diocese.

The program was initiated in September, 2010 for Spanish-speaking Catholics. In September, 2011, this three year non-credit certificate program will be available in English and in Spanish. The program provides a foundation in theological studies, pastoral skills and spiritual development, integrated with preparation for ministry and service.

Each of the 14 courses is six weeks in length and is followed by an evening of theological reflection. Special features of this program include opportunities for mentoring, retreats, spiritual book sharing, ministry visits and a ministry project within the participant’s parish.

Church Ministry Institute classes will be held in several locations around the diocese. For more information and an application call Linda K. Robinson at 856-583-6116 or e-mail
