St. Junipero Serra Institute is an Adult Formation Program by the Diocese of Fort Worth.

English | Español

Our Catholic faith requires us to embark on a continual call to conversion. One steeped in the mystery of Christ and His Church. It is with this pastoral understanding that the Diocese of Fort Worth desires to foster and engage this call to conversion through the development of our new program, St. Junipero Serra Institute (SJSI).

This new institute will continue the mission of forming the laity in the teachings of the Catholic Church. It consists of three levels of formation (Foundational, Intermediate and Advanced), with each level consisting of five courses. The cost for each course will be $75, with an average length of 6 weeks.

For those seeking a more advanced focus, the St. Junipero Serra Institute will also offer additional specific course content through three ministerial track concentrations. Please view the General Information page for more details.

Classes will be held in person at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic School, Fort Worth on Mondays from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
