“Were not our hearts burning [within us] while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?” (Lk 24:32)
What’s Faith Got to Do With It?
As the General Directory for Catechesis states: “The maturation of the Christian life requires that it be cultivated in all its dimensions: knowledge of the faith, liturgical life, moral formation, prayer, belonging to community, missionary spirit. When catechesis omits one of these elements, the Christian faith does not attain full development.”
The ongoing development of a living, explicit, and fruitful Christian faith in adulthood requires growth in six dimensions: Knowledge of the Faith, Liturgical Life, Moral Formation, Prayer, Communal Life, and Missionary Spirit. Each of them is a fundamental aspect of Christian life and a foundational content area for adult faith formation.
The Adult Faith Formation Team here at Our Lady of Guadalupe strives to provide care and development for families through various programs, education, and formation opportunities. The goal of these efforts is that the laity may bring the Gospel to all structures of society: family life, political life, workplace, science and the arts, and mass media.
