Director of Pastoral Formation

Mrs. Therese Frank

As a young person I was drawn to the study of philosophy and was led to pursue this interest at the Catholic University of America, graduating from there with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy.

The friendships forged during the years at CUA led to my meeting and marrying my husband.  During our forty years together we have reared five children who have thus far blessed us with, at present count, eighteen grandchildren.  In addition to our shared interest in philosophy and theology, we are both professed members of the Secular Franciscan Order.

Over the years I have worked in a variety of church ministries, many of them educational and/or related to preparation for living the sacramental life.  I also returned to graduate school, earning a Master of Arts in Theology from the University of Dallas.

In 2015 I joined the faculty of Holy Trinity Seminary as Director of Pastoral Formation. In addition to guiding their on-site ministerial work, I provide the seminarians with learning opportunities that will lead them to a deeper understanding of specific areas of church ministry, help them develop necessary ministerial skills, and lead them into a life-long habit of theological reflection.
