Why do we have Adult Faith Formation?
Through our baptism, we are called to grow in discipleship throught life, to
build vibrant parish and diocesan communities of faith and service.
"To teach as Jesus did means calling and equipping all Christians of every age and stage of life to fulfill their baptismal call to holiness in family, Church, and society - their mission to evangelize and transform the world into a more caring and just society. Ongoing faith formation is essential to accomplish this mission; it does not end at confirmation or graduation but continues until one's death. Accordingly, we strongly reaffirm that, 'without neglecting its commitment to children, catechesis needs to give more attention to adults than it has been accustomed to do.'" (Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, 1999, p. 14.)
"As adults, we cannot get by in life with the knowledge of a child."-- Rev. Anthony Bosco
