Adult Faith Formation

Every disciple of the Lord Jesus shares in [the mission of proclaiming the Good News of Jesus to all the world]. To do their part, adult Catholics must be mature in faith and well equipped to share the Gospel, promoting it in every family circle, in every church gathering, in every place of work, and in every public forum. They must be women and men of prayer whose faith is alive and vital, grounded in a deep commitment to the person and message of Jesus.

Adult faith formation, by which people consciously grow in the life of Christ through experience, reflection, prayer, and study, must be the central task in this catechetical enterprise, becoming the axis around which revolves the catechesis of childhood and adolescence as well as that of old age. This can be done specifically through developing in adults a better understanding of and participation in the full sacramental life of the Church.

“To make this vision a reality, we, as the Catholic bishops of the United States, call the Church in our country to a renewed commitment to adult faith formation, positioning it at the heart of our catechetical vision and practice.”  Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us: A Pastoral Plan for Adult Faith Formation in the United States 2, 5, 6.
