Here are some practical recommendations on teaching for adults, bible study, and popular programs to help you develop adult Christian formation in the parish and beyond. Increasingly, people are also being formed through informal and online resources. For example, if you are interested in apps for prayer, see here, and if you love podcasts, here is a list for Christian formation. For more online resources, check out the Diocesan pinterest board on Adult Christian Formation.

You may also want to survey your parish or small group to see what their formation needs and preferences are. This is an editable Google form that is free to copy and edit for your purposes. It can be sent out via an email or social media.
