The learning platform for all involved in ministry in our parishes and dioceses.

Aspal, the Irish for Apostle reminds us that we are all called in order to be sent. The baptism we share, recalled in the blue waters of the Aspal logo, calls us to mission – to bring others to a knowledge of our Triune God, pointed to in that first A of Aspal. A God from whom all emerge and toward whom all intend.

Aspal is the product of a collaboration of the Adult Faith Development Team in Ossory Diocese and St Patrick’s Pontifical University, Maynooth.  It is the leader is digital faith formation on the island of Ireland, serving every parish and diocese in Ireland.

Our collaboration allows for people in the comfort of their own homes to engage with the highest quality ongoing faith formation. This new means of digital catechesis – the future of faith learning – has been made possible thanks to the support of the Benefact Trust.

Digital Faith Formation is the future of our helping people to know God in a deeper way. We are delighted in this collaboration to lead people on this journey.
