Parish Life

Dave Baloga teaches lectoring skills to the Deacon at the Cathedral.


The Diocesan Office of Parish Life works directly with parishes and parish leaders to provide a variety of informational, training and supportive services to guide the faithful, enhance religious education and better connect parishioners to their faith.

They focus on all aspects of life in our parishes: Word, Worship, Community and Service.

The Parish Life team members work on-site in parishes to provide leadership formation, spiritual renewal, parish ministry training and development opportunities. The team also provides guidance with the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and assists with the training sessions for the Permanent Diaconate Formation Program and young adult ministries throughout the Diocese.
