St. Francis De Sales Program

St. Francis De Sales program is the Catechist Formation Program offered by the Diocese of Fort Worth.

English | Español


The purpose of the St. Francis De Sales Program is to teach the faith as proclaimed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church and offer specialized catechist formation through pedagogical instruction.

In this effort, we seek "to put people not only in touch, but also in communion and intimacy, with Jesus Christ" (GDC 80, CT 5).

Our hope is that everyone who participates in this program will grow in their relationship with the Lord and cultivate a deeper appreciation for catechesis and the central role it plays in forming the Catholic faithful.
