Christifideles Certification Program

Christifideles Certification Program

Graduate Education in Theology & Ministry partnered with Formation & Archdiocesan Certification for Lay Ecclesial Ministers

The Archdiocese of Seattle is looking for leaders called to serve God’s people as competent, effective, and certified ministers for Youth & Young Adults, Faith Formation, RCIA, Chaplaincy, Outreach, Administration, Detention Ministry, Sacramental Preparation, Liturgy, and other ministries.

Christifideles is based on the principles and guidelines of the USCCB document, Co-Workers in the Vineyard of the Lord, for the formation of Lay Ecclesial Ministers.

It is a program that comprises:
  • Graduate formation at one of the Archdiocesan-approved Schools of Theology: Seattle University, University of Portland, and University of Dallas (scholarships awarded based on financial need)
  • Formation retreats & spiritual direction
  • Evenings of Reflection – opportunities to learn more about archdiocesan priorities, programs, and staff
  • Annual luncheons with Archbishop Sartain
