The Pastoral Formation Institute (PFI) was founded after the Diocesan Synod expressed the need of promoting and co-ordinating one of the main challenges of the Church today: that of preparing christians for the social realities of today.
The PFI is a sign that the Church in Malta is keen to provide means of formation to those categories and groups in society that are not directly involved in pastoral action but feel the need of referring in depth to the message of Christ and his Church in their ordinary or professional work.
