About Us

The formation of mature disciples is the first priority in the Church’s catechetical schema: to invite ongoing conversion to Jesus in holiness of life, encourage active membership in the Christian community, and call adults to act as disciples in mission to the world. Adult faith formation should be at the forefront of parish-based catechetical formation.
