Adult Faith Formation Resources

"Being Christian is not the result of a ethical choice or a lofty idea, but an encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction". A powerful statement from the late Pope Benedict XVI and an important reminder that above all else, God desires to have a personal relationship with each of us. As with every relationship, growth in love entails growth in knowledge; in order to love someone more, we must strive to know more about them.


Below you will find a number of personal and small group resources to help you on your journey towards entering into a deeper understanding of God's great love for you and His Church.
