Adult Formation

Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. (Colossians)

The Vicariate for Formation is developing various programmes to enable adult members of the Church to deepen their own understanding of the faith and to be better equipped to live out their baptismal vocation in the Church and in the World.

Continuing formation in the faith is directed not only to the individual Christian, to accompany them in their journey towards holiness, but also to the Christian community as such so that it may mature also in its interior life of love of God and of the brethren as well as in its openness to the world as a missionary community.

Further details will be posted as these courses and programmes become available.

Training Confident Catechists, a six week course to offer initial formation for new or prospective catechists, will be offered in the autumn. Further details to follow.

“The definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ: only He can lead us to the love of the Father in the Spirit and make us share in the life of the Holy Trinity.”

(St John Paul II)
