Br. John Mark Falkenhain, OSB, Ph.D., offers a comprehensive and ready-to-implement model for a celibacy formation program.
Br. John Mark Falkenhain, OSB, Ph.D., introduces a comprehensive and ready-to-implement model for a celibacy formation program. The model is designed to be applicable to both seminary and religious life settings and can be useful in initial and ongoing formation programs. Four major content areas are described (motives for celibacy, theological aspects, sexual identity and skills for celibate living), along with formation goals, recommended responsible personnel and arenas within seminary and religious life in which this work of formation would be accomplished.
Priests, deacons, men and women religious, lay ministers, and those involved in vocations, formation, or clergy and ministry personnel needs.
This workshop was presented at the Practical Models for Celibacy Formation conference, sponsored by Saint Luke Institute and Saint Meinrad Archabbey and Seminary and School of Theology. Browse other presentations from the conference here.
