About Us

The Center for Catholic Education and Formation (The Center) is committed to serving all parish faith formation leaders, youth ministers and those who coordinate sacramental preparation. For our Parish Faith Formation Leaders we offer a variety of resources, workshops, trainings and webinars to support faith formation ministries that serve children, youth and families. Seasonal and family resources are also available on our Faith Resources Pages. We have also created a Resource Library for you to use. If you would like to access this library, contact us.

Consultation can be arranged for parish leaders who continue to design, evaluate and implement lifelong faith formation in parishes.

If you are an adult looking to make your sacraments, we encourage you to reach out to your local parish. If you need to find a parish in the Archdiocese of Hartford, visit this page. For a listing of Adult Confirmation classes gathering in the Archdiocese, click here.

If there is any other way that we can help you in your ministry, please let us know. 

The work of evangelization enriches the mind and the heart; it opens up spiritual horizons; it makes us more and more sensitive to the workings of the Holy Spirit, and it takes us beyond our limited spiritual constructs.

– Pope Francis (Evangelii Gaudium 272)
