Gearing Up to be a Pastor


This five-day workshop, typically undertaken during the second year following ordination, builds upon the  The Associate Pastor workshop and starts the preparation for becoming a pastor.

The program addresses the "big picture" issues of being a pastor - credibility, authority, spiritual leadership, healthy lifestyles and the basics of parish administration - and prepares the priest for effective ministry within a variety of settings.
