Over the last few years the OPRFM have been involved in the development of the diocesan pastoral plan, the formation and support of parish pastoral councils, and the formation of parish family ministry co-ordinators and parish baptism teams.
Soil for the Seed: Exploring our Faith as Adults is one of the adult faith formation programmes being offered by OPRFM which also include shorter courses, one-day events and the opportunities for on-line learning.
While based in Dundalk, the commitment of the OPRFM is to be available to work with parishes and parish groups in their own area. We offer training and facilitation designed to support the local pastoral and family ministry development needs of the parishes in the diocese.
