The Stanton Center for Ministry Formation serves the Diocese of Dallas by providing:

  • A variety of courses in theology and spirituality, which meet the needs of Christians who desire to grow and mature in their discipleship;
  • Diploma programs for lay leaders in our parishes, especially those called to be Lay Catechists or Lay Evangelists;
  • Preparation for individuals seeking ordination to the Diaconate in the Diocese of Dallas;
  • Continuing education for clergy and seminars for the laity.

Stanton Center classes are open to anyone who is interested in learning more about our faith. Classes meet one weekend per month on the Cathedral campus. We have a diverse learning community, and students enjoy fellowship in our small classes, monthly Eucharist, and Saturday lunch together.
