The Instituto Formation Pastoral/ Pastoral Formation Institute seeks to nourish a mature faith that is “living, explicit and fruitful.”[1] The purpose of the IFP/PFI is to offer a program of basic adult faith formation that provides academic formation in the foundational understandings of the Catholic faith, initial spiritual formation in the rich traditions of prayer and spirituality in the Church, and an introduction to basic skills of lay ministry.
