Adult Faith Formation programs aim to help the faithful to grow in both human and Christian maturity, enriching the whole life. Consequently, appropriate content will embrace all the faith dimensions of an adult life—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.
Adult Faith Formation attends to the heart, mind, soul and body. It is an integrated understanding of who we are as beloved children of God, who are continually urged to know, love and serve God more fully. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops describes adult faith formation as an essential process inviting Catholic Christians to integrate their own life experiences with knowledge of the faith, love of God and love of neighbor. It is a complete initiation into the life of the Church as a way of forming a Christian conscience and a desire to act as Christ’s hands and feet in the world.
