What is Adult Faith Formation?Adult faith formation facilitates continuing spiritual and catechetical growth for parish adults.
Why do we have Adult Faith Formation?The United States Catholic Conference of Bishops in 1999 authored a pastoral plan for adult faith formation in the United States entitled Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us. This document made clear a new priority for adult faith formation. We are called to grow in discipleship throughout life, to build vibrant parish and diocesan communities of faith and service.
What is the goal of Adult Faith Formation?As the Bishops stated in Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us: “We seek to form adults who actively cultivate a lively baptismal and Eucharistic spirituality with a powerful sense of mission and apostolate. Nourished by word, sacrament and communal life, they will witness and share the Gospel in their homes, neighborhoods, places of work, and centers of culture.”
The office of Adult Faith Formation at St. Laurence Catholic Church endeavors to foster a parish environment that helps the believer to flourish and constantly be challenged to grow in faith.
Adult Faith Formation sessions are open to everyone.
