"God is always waiting for us, He never grows tired. Jesus shows us this merciful patience of God so that we can regain confidence and hope — always!" — Pope Francis, Homily on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 7, 2013
What is Adult Faith Formation?
The USCCB wrote a pastoral plan for all parishes, titled Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us (1999). In it, the bishops "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" (OHWB 6). They define adult faith formation as that "by which people consciously grow in the life of Christ through experience, reflection, prayer, and study."
Why Adult Faith Formation?
"...adults "have the greatest responsibilities and the capacity to live the Christian message in its fully developed form. Their formation in faith is essential for the Church to carry out its mandate to proclaim the Good News of Jesus to the world. Effective adult formation is necessary to "equip the holy ones for the work of ministry" "(Eph 4:12). (OWHB 42)
