“The Church’s catechetical mission aims to help the faithful of all ages to grow in both human and Christian maturity, enriching the whole of life with the leaven of the Gospel.” (USCCCB)
According to the USCCCB, there are three goals in ongoing, or adult faith formation:
- To invite and enable ongoing conversion to Jesus in holiness of life.
- To promote and support active membership in the Christian community.
- To call and prepare adults to act as disciples in mission to the world.
