Aparecida 344: Formation For Ministry

344. In recent decades in Latin America and the Caribbean, we observe the emergence of different institutes of theology and pastoral ministry offering refresher courses aimed at the formation of pastoral agents. Along these lines, opportunities for dialogue, discussion and the pursuit of adequate responses to the enormous challenges faced by evangelization in our continent have been created. Countless leaders have likewise been trained for service to the particular churches.

For deeper examination, an English translation of the 2007 document from the Aparecida Conference.
