The formation of presbyters for the work with non-believers in Poland

Dariusz Lipiec


The article presents the ways of preparation of priests for the work with non- believers. The author enumerates the dimensions of the priestly formation: human, spiritual, intellectual and pastoral. Human and spiritual formations require deepening of the presbyters’ spirituality as well as the formation of the humanistic attitude which is the basis for establishing and leading a dialogue with non-believers. The implementation of intellectual formation requires study- ing the contemporary philosophical currents which constitute the basis of the current cultural changes as well as of the social transformations. In the pastoral formation presbyters are to gain new pastorals skills which are adequate to the current challenges as well as deepen the skills of making proper use of the pastoral experience which they had gained.
