SENT Institute

Are you ready to be SENT? This spring and summer, the Office of Faith Formation will pilot a process of formation for adults to answer Pope Francis’ call to every baptized Christian to be missionary disciples of Jesus Christ, making disciples of Christ in their parishes, communities and workplaces. It is our sincere hope that through this experience you will encounter the Lord Jesus in a life-changing way, be transformed by that relationship with him, and be sent to invite others into relationship with Jesus Christ in His Church. Come, and let your heart be set on fire to make Christ and His Gospel known and loved!  If you would like to learn more, please contact Joshua Biting. The SENT Institute will be held at St. Vincent de Paul, Andover.
