Foundations & Together in Mission

Started in 2004, Foundations is a one-year formation program for Catholics in the Diocese of New Ulm. It’s the first of two formation programs sponsored by the diocese, the other being Together in Mission.

Participants meet one Saturday a month between September and April at a designated location. Each day-long meeting contains presentations on the Catholic faith, prayer, and lunch.

While anyone can participate, these formation programs are especially recommended for persons involved in parish ministry, such as catechists, DREs, Catholic school teachers, and Catholic school principals.

The next Foundations session has not yet been announced. The cost is $110, which includes materials and meals. Scholarships are available.
