Faith Formation and Training Commission

Faith formation refers to all the activities that happen at home, in school and in the parish that help people to know, appreciate and live their faith. Central to this is the process of catechesis by which we form people in Christian identity so that they can live as disciples of Jesus.  Training refers to the equipping of people for the ministries they carry out on behalf of the Christian community in parish, diocese and society.  It is the task of the Faith Formation and Training Commission to initiate, promote, encourage and support initiatives within the diocese with regard to sacramental preparation, the Rite of Christian Initiation of adults, the catechesis of children, young people and families, the ongoing formation of adults and the training of people for ministry.
