What is Adult Faith Formation?
To progress in the Christian life, and respond to the universal call to holiness, requires our constant response to the Lord’s continuing invitation to conversion of heart, mind and life. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Rome, “Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.” (Romans 12:2) Adult Faith formation contributes to our progress in this conversion by helping us to understand the faith we profess and integrate it into our daily lives. The instruction involved in this process is referred to as “catechesis”.
St. Stephen, Martyr Parish offers opportunities for evangelization, catechesis and instructions in living the Catholic Christian faith for adults at every stage of life. The fullness of the Catholic Christian Faith is presented in thematically arranged and practice programs which continue throughout the year.
