Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
We believe that God and the child have a unique relationship with one another particularly before the age of six and that the growth of this relationship should be assisted by the adult, but is directed by the Spirit of God within the child.

DIRT
DiRT is a retreat that is all about finding Christ in Confirmation. Many high school students do not have a regular prayer life. These Confirmation retreats seek to enable an encounter with Jesus and give catechesis that helps sustain that relationship in their daily lives.


LEAD
An ideal place for parish youth councils/boards to deepen their Christian leadership identity, strengthen their leadership skills, learn new programming and promotional ideas, and have a great deal of fun in the process.

College Formation
While there are a number of college campuses with active full-time campus ministries, complete with chaplains, facilities, and staff, most of the 28 college campuses in the Diocese of Wichita are served by volunteers and the local parish community.  We help serve those college parish communities with financial resources and the strategies to integrate college students into an active local faith life.
