The mission of the School of Evangelization is to serve the formation and educational needs of those who seek to know for the first time or desire a deeper understanding and relationship with Christ Jesus and His Church by providing guidance, support, and resources to clergy, women and men in consecrated life, and laity of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn.

Formed in Spring 2014, the School of Evangelization encompasses the departments of Faith Formation and the Pastoral Institute. Our Guidebook for 2016-2017 contains current information regarding our initiatives, department offerings, Living and Leading by Faith Catechist and Catechetical Leader Faith Formation Program courses, calendar, and resources.

We also offer online learning and leadership formation via local courses and educational events – click here to register for full program information. We also work with a number of formation partners.
