Title: BASIC PLAN FOR THE ONGOING FORMATION OF PRIESTS, THE
This resource was prepared by the Bishop's Committee for Priestly Life and Ministry in 1999. This plan of ongoing formation for priests in the United States includes two parts. The first treats ongoing formation in a "synchronic" way, noting that there are elements of dynamics of ongoing formation that are the same at every moment of priest's lives. The second party of the plan proceeds "diachronically" or longitudinally, identifying the different formational tasks appropriate in the different ages and special moments of priestly ministry and life. Both the synchronic and diachronic parts of the plan are inspired by, and seek to be faithful to, the documents of the Second Vatican Council. 121 pages.
