West Coast Collaborative

The Diocese of San Diego for Ministry is now in partnership with the dioceses of Northern California and El Camino Real as The West Coast Collaborative. After months of planning and preparation, The West Coast Collaborative launched with two initial tracks:  Lay Preaching (English and Spanish language cohort) and Formation for Deacons.  In April, the collaborative launched Lay Preaching (English and Spanish language cohort). Classes run for 12 months. 

The following programs will be offered in 2024: 

  • Formation for Deacons

This track is reserved for those who are preparing for ordination to the vocational diaconate.  Permission of the Bishop is required for ordination 

  • Lay Preaching (Both Spanish language cohorts) 

This track is designed for those wishing to licensed as a lay preacher.  Applications must be endorsed by priest-in-charge of applicant’s congregation. 

Other tracks are in the development stage, which we also hope to offer in the coming year.  A catalog of all offerings will be posted in September, with applications open on October 1 and closing on December 1
