The first year is designed to give participants a foundational understanding of the Catholic faith. The second year of the IFP/PFI includes basic pastoral skills. The program is offered in English and Spanish; it is referred to by both its Spanish and English titles. As an outreach ministry of Oblate School of Theology, the first year is conducted in a parish setting and the second year takes place on the OST campus.
