Adult Formation Resources

“Christian formation is at the core of the purpose of a parish church/faith community. God is always the ultimate source of all formation. Our role is to assist God in God’s work of the formation of God’s own people.” - Archbishop Melissa Skelton

This webpage is designed to give you some practical recommendations on further reading and programs to help you with adult Christian formation. Below is the the Christian Formation blog with articles on core topics and activities to strengthen and form people in the way of Christ. For more online resources, check out the Diocesan pinterest board on Adult Christian Formation.
