Among its responsibilities the Agency numbers the support and promotion of ongoing faith formation; the key to our being the formators and evangelisers we are called to be. We are working to help parishes nurture the faith formation of adults, affording all an understanding of what the Church teaches and a vocabulary with which to explain their faith and reach out to others. We support adult faith formation by helping parishes develop their own pastoral plan and by organising talks and events around the diocese which parishes can tap into.
There are many successful adult faith formation programmes to choose from. Each of them has something to offer and can play a valuable part in the development of a comprehensive parish plan.
