Faith Formation Facilitator

The goal of formation of any kind is to grow in understanding, integration and practice.

Catholic Adult Faith Formation seeks the same.

As Catholic Christians, we need to grow in both human and Christian maturity.

These are accomplished when all the dimensions of adult life are embraced and lived

- for example, understanding and communicating the faith, skills needed for personal growth, the experience of family life, relationships, public service and concern for the common good.

This 'learning' really never ends.  We will only know fully when God calls us home.

How can you enrich your own faith journey???
