ADULT FAITH formation

"I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full." John 10:10


Adult Faith Formation supports lifelong learning and conversion to Jesus Christ.  


                            To nourish and strengthen lay men and women in their call and mission as contributors to the life                                           and work of the Church and to the proclamation of the Gospel to the world.


                                    ".......adult Catholics must be mature in faith and well equipped to share the Gospel....

                                       they must be women and men of prayer....grounded in a deep commitment to the

                                               person and message of Jesus."  Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, p.1
