Living As Missionary Disciples

A free online Adult Faith Formation Course

This course walks participants through the fourfold methodology of missionary discipleship and provides six dimensions for pastoral planning based on Evangelii Gaudium- The Joy of the Gospel. This course provides an opportunity to walk through the material with videos discussing each chapter, materials from the Vatican and elsewhere to further unpack, and prayerful reflection to come to a better understanding of missionary discipleship and its importance for parishes to live the Gospel.

The catechetical formation of adults is essential for the Church to carry out the commission given the apostles by Christ. (National Directory for Catechesis no. 48A) The catechesis of adults is the ideal standard toward which all catechetical activity is aimed. The Archdiocesan Catechetical Office serves the needs of our parishes by offering consultation and support for adult faith formation design and implementation.  In addition, we offer the Spotlight Series on a continuous basis. Spotlight courses are led by dynamic master teachers and are open to all adults who seek to deepen their faith by focusing on the Sacred Scriptures and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
