Adult Faith Education/Formation
Adult Faith Education begins with our own life experience and reality. We are called by God through Baptism and commissioned in Christ and empowered through the Holy Spirit to bring about the reign of God on Earth.
Adult Faith Education fosters and assists adult Christians to understand the sublime nature of their calling and to put into practice their baptismal role as priest, prophet and king.
