The Blessed Carlo Institute for Youth Ministers is a four-day, three-night experience of formation that includes classes each morning taught by seminary professors, afternoon workshops by ministry experts, off-campus excursions, daily Mass, and more.

The Blessed Carlo Institute is part of a three-year curriculum, though each summer stands alone and will not be a pre-requisite for the following year. It will be a key component of youth ministry certification from our diocese, and will be available as part of a 1-credit MA course in Pastoral Theology from St. Mary Seminary and Graduate School of Theology. More information on certification and MA credit coming soon.
