Catholic Ministry Formation Register
The Catholic Ministry Formation Register (CMFR) is intended to keep a record of those in formation for Clerical or Religious Ministry.
The CMFR will aid in the screening of applicants and serve as a historical record of formation. Deidentified aggregate data from this system relating to safeguarding will help inform ACSL in coming years.
Below you will find information about the Register, and the forms that Church entities, Contact People and those being registered will use to engage with us.
These materials will be updated and more will be added in coming months.
