Center for Priestly Formation

The University of the Holy Cross erected the Center for Priestly Formation in response to the request for strong initiatives that offer prieslty formation at various levels.

Designed for priests, deacons, and candidates to Holy Orders who are interested in entering more deeply into the meaning of the priesthood, the CFS seeks to offer formative support that is capable of confronting the challenges and demands of contemporary society.


The Center for Priestly Formation is characterized by multicultural openness, an interdisciplinary approach, and particular attention to the problems of contemporary society.

The formation also has a practical orientation to accompany the scientific method typical of university studies.

In evidenza

Dal 15 febbraio al 5 aprile 2017 si svolge la IV edizione del corso Ars prædicandi, tenuto dai professori Sergio Tapia e Alberto Gil.

Si tratta di un seminario con un orientamento prevalentemente pratico per aiutare i sacerdoti affinchè la loro predicazione possa assolvere le tre funzioni classiche dell'arte della retorica: movere (convincere), delectare (piacere) e docere (insegnare).

Ars prædicandi. Comunicare in maniera efficace e attraente
