Adult Faith Formation

AFF: Reconciliation - Mercy Rules the Church
February 5

What is Adult Faith Formation?

Adult Faith Formation attends to our heart, our mind, our soul, and our 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.

The Three Main Goals

  1. Invite and Enable Ongoing Conversion to Jesus in Holiness of Life.
  2. Promote and Support Active Membership in the Christian Community.
  3. Call and Prepare Adults to Act as Disciples in Mission to the World.

While we encourage adults to attend our AFF classes on Sundays, we also understand that it may not be possible for some, or that classes are sometimes missed. In order to share knowledge and continue to educate the faithful, we record and share our classes online. We are working to get our full video collection online, so if you see something missing – stay tuned!  For any questions or comments, please contact Dr. Cheryl White.
