The Diocese of Phoenix engages in the faith formation of the young through Catholic schools by integrating faith throughout an educational process that promotes academic excellence, moral values and lifelong service.
Faith begins in the family, the domestic church. Family Catechesis provides support, services and trainings to parishes, pastors, priests and leaders to enable them in the Church’s mission of evangelization and catechesis.

The John Paul II Resource Center for Theology of the Body and Culture was founded in the Diocese of Phoenix by Bishop Thomas Olmsted in 2006. The Resource Center's mission is to honor Pope John Paul II and to promulgate his “theology of the body” along with his reflections on culture, life issues, and human dignity in an enthusiastic and approachable way in order to transform lives and renew culture.
The Office of Natural Family Planning is an organization of people dedicated to the instruction, support and promotion of Natural Family Planning, sexual morality education and related married and family life issues. We are committed to this mission because God's great gift of sexuality deeply affects every human person.

The Kino Library was officially founded in 1978. Efforts were immediately begun to build an outstanding theological collection to meet the needs of Catholic adults in the Phoenix area. Since its beginning the library has expanded to provide theological and biblical resources for adults of many faiths in the southwest. Today the library has grown to over 25,000 English and Spanish resources.
