The next in-person meeting for the Parish Catechetical Leadership Institute will be July 11-16, 2021. PCLI 2021 will be offered on campus and in-person with safe COVID social distancing procedures.  

Developed in partnership with the Dioceses of Evansville and Owensboro, Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology offers an intensive formation opportunity to equip you for catechetical leadership in the 21st century:

  • based on the four dimensions of formation outlined in Co-Workers in the Vineyard of the Lord for lay ecclesial ministers

  • guided by the National Directory for Catechesis, and

  • aligned with the National Certification Standards for Catechetical Leaders. The three-year cycle of five-day intensive workshops addresses intellectual, human, spiritual and pastoral formation, and provides a bridge between theory and practical applications.
