Program Opportunities at Ministry Institute

The Ministry Institute brings men and women together from a variety of locations and backgrounds.

Some are discerning a call to priesthood, diaconate, and religious life or preparing to enter a seminary. Others are preparing for lay ministry in the Church. Some are professional ministers, ordained and lay, who are taking a break from active ministry to develop their skills for more effective ministry. All share a common commitment and use the resources of Gonzaga University and the Spokane community for personal enrichment, academic education and pastoral training.

For all of these, the Ministry Institute provides a setting where small community living is a supportive environment for personal growth, broadening of intellectual horizons, deepening of spirituality, and honing of ministerial skills.

The Ministry Institute's programs are semester-based.
