How do adults grow in their faith in a modern world? How do we pastoral ministers help them? This excellent resource provides a road map to help us examine this and plan ways to succeed. --Bill Huebsch, Author of Dreams and Visions: Pastoral Planning for Lifelong Faith Formation
Some of the most important people in faith formation are often overlooked: adults. But how can parishes engage people living in a postmodern world people who consider themselves spiritual but not religious, who may be suspicious of large institutions, and whose experiences and worldviews are as diverse as our parishes themselves?
Nationally recognized educator Jane Regan explores what important church documents say about evangelization and catechesis, and how they play a crucial role in thriving adult faith communities. Then she offers practical ways parishes of all sizes and personalities can help people become true disciples.
With reflection and discussion questions throughout, Forming a Community of Faith is essential for Pastors, DREs, RCIA teams, education advisory boards, parish councils, committee chairpersons and anyone who wishes to discover and nurture a dynamic, mature, and fruitful faith.
