Maturity, leadership, and love for Christ and the Church are among the qualities essential to all who minister in the church. Human formation seeks to develop a person’s human qualities and character, fostering a healthy and well-balanced personality, for the sake for both personal growth and ministerial service. Human Formation seeks to provide self-awareness, balance and growth in the lay minister. One way to foster self-awareness is to be attentive to feedback from those we serve or those with whom we serve. Balance is achieved by being aware of our limits, taking care of ourselves and attending to the needs of our families first.
