ADULT FORMATION

Your Faith Journey

We all have a unique journey, a particular path that God has laid out just for you. No journey is identical to another, but we all have the same call - to be disciples of Christ, and the same destination - eternal life with God. The key to your faith is continual formation, and that means working on your relationship with God and His Church. Like any relationship, if it is not nurtured, it will stagnate and eventually die. Come and explore adult formation; it's a journey we can all take together...you don't have to travel alone.

 

Why Adult Formation?

Why is religious education for adults so important? To answer this, we must realize that all baptized Christians, whether Catholic or non-Catholic, are called to be disciples of Jesus Christ. Discipleship is a lifelong faith journey; it doesn’t end when we reach adulthood...Adult faith formation gives us the opportunity to learn about Catholic faith from an adult perspective which, in turn, helps us integrate our life experience with the religious education we received as children. Ultimately, it helps us to grow in our faith and prepares us for our mission of evangelization.
