Participants are welcome to join classes in year two of the Davenport Diocese’s Ministry Formation Program at any time. The program will be offered in two formats: 1) Via ICN and printed course material that is distributed prior to each course. The ICN groups meet two times a month at an ICN location within easy driving distance. 2) Non-ICN participants use DVDs and printed course materials that can be studied at home. Participants meet once a month in a small group within easy driving distance.

Courses for this year include: Old Testament, New Testament, Introduction to Spirituality, Introduction to Theology, Introduction to Liturgy, Introduction to Canon and Civil Law, Introduction to Moral Themes, and Introduction to Catechetical Themes.
