Catholic Leaders Formation Network

CLFN-Logo-01

A professional formation network

for leaders in Catholic schools, parishes,

dioceses and other Church organisations

engaged in evangelisation.

FLAME Communities 

Forming Leaders as Missionary Evangelisers

Reignite and fan the flame of faith by connecting with a small group of other leaders to grow in faith and effectiveness. FLAME Communities become faith communities as members in similar ministries meet regularly for prayer, formation and to encourage and share with one another. Communities can be local, diocesan or national.

Members of these Communities engage with the FLAME Series (Porta Fidei, Called, Essentials) and other CLFN programs (Voices and Vision). FLAME Communities and CLFN Programs are offered in various modes, locations and times of the year. Communities may be formed for a specific period or be ongoing. These are led by certified CLFN leaders.

Weekly Prayer 

Formed in Prayer provides weekly Sunday Gospel inspired prayer and reflection for staff prayer. Click here for a sample. There is the opportunity to pray together, learn and adapt traditional forms of prayer such as Lectio Divina and The Ignatian Examen.

Supportive Online Network

The CLFN online platform provides tools to learn from and collaborate with other members in similar roles, ministries and regions. Use zoom, Chat and Topic features to seek advice, look for and share resources as well as discuss emerging issues in pastoral practice. Explore and enjoy all our network features on our exclusive app. Formation webinars are on offer throughout the year.

Leadership of Staff and Student Formation 

The CLFN itself provides opportunities for leadership aimed at mentoring and supporting other leaders in Catholic schools, parishes, organisations, ministries and movements. The platform provides professional learning and formation resources that you can use and adapt in running CSYMA and CLFN programs for your staff.
