“We are convinced that the energy and resources we devote to adult faith formation will strengthen and invigorate all the charisms that adults receive and the activities they undertake, in the Church and in society, to serve the Gospel of Christ and the people of today.  Every Church ministry will be energized through a dynamic ministry of adult catechesis.”
