Human Formation

Print Page


To be truly Catholic means to be truly and fully human. Likewise, the bedrock of any effective ministry and service is "a healthy, well-balanced personality" (Co-Workers in the Vineyard, p. 36). Our human formation opportunities can help you cultivate:

  • an understanding and respect of yourself and others; 
  • psychological and physical health; 
  • an ability to acknowledge your gifts and limitations; 
  • an appreciation of diversity; 
  • the classical virtues of Christian discipleship.

Here are just a few opportunities we provide for human formation:

  • Graduate courses dealing with human formation issues
  • Extensive wellness program (indoor and outdoor athletic facilities; intramural sports program; health, fitness and weight loss programs)
  • On-site health clinic for minor medical services; available health insurance
  • Psychological counseling services from licensed professionals on staff
