Catechesis for Adults, Youth, and Children

“The catechesis of adults … is the principle form of catechesis … all other forms of catechesis are oriented in some way to it …” (National 74432 1678454080338 1207105411 1897405 5200446 nDirectory for Catechesis, 48 A).

The Office of Religious Education makes adult faith formation a priority. It strives primarily to enable adults to share their Catholic faith with other adults, youth, and children. The Office offers a variety of services to form adults and to help them form others in the faith:

Adult Faith Formation Opportunities Fall/Spring offers courses in both foundational and contemporary theological topics ONLINE and at various locations throughout the diocese.

Evangelization and Catechesis Conference provides a full day of faith formation opportunities for a variety of catechetical and pastoral ministries. 

Scripture Reflections follow the lectio divina method of Scriptural prayer for the Sunday Gospels. Published seasonally, this prayer aid is appropriate for individuals and small faith sharing groups.  

Select Websites for Catholic Faith Formation includes links to a variety of websites helpful for the faith formation of adults, youth, and children.
