Lifelong Formation

Lifelong Formation Coordinators

The Lifelong Formation Coordinators recognize and serve the diversity of gifts and cultures in their vicariates. They provide a 360-degree view of the state of the Archdiocese of Chicago. The mission of the Lifelong Formation Coordinators is to advise and transform parish leadership to renew and revitalize the church, one parish and one family at a time.

How it Works

A Lifelong Formation Coordinator is assigned to each of the six vicariates within the Archdiocese of Chicago. Coordinators are fully integrated in the culture of each individual vicariate and are informed of local events. They have a deep understanding of each vicariate’s strengths and opportunities for growth. Through weekly meetings, coordinators have the opportunity to share successes and challenges in each vicariate, and learn about best practices that can be incorporated to help foster growth within each community.
