The General Directory for Catechesis gives priority to the Faith Formation
"'Catechesis for adults, since it deals with persons who are capable of
an adherence that is fully responsible, must be considered the chief form
of catechesis. All the other forms, which are indeed always necessary, are
in some way oriented to it.' This implies that the catechesis of other age
groups should have it for a point of reference and should be expressed in
conjunction with it, in a coherent catechetical program suitable to meet
the pastoral needs of dioceses."
(#59) General Directory for Catechesis. USCC, 1998.
... the continuing education of adults is situated not at the periphery
of the Church's educational mission but at its centre. (#43) To Teach
as Jesus Did. USCC, 1972.
There are many bodies within the diocese of Wagga Wagga that contribute to,
and provide opportunities for adults to further their Faith Formation by
accessing resources at a diocesan or parish level.
Programmes available are provided with the needs of parishes in mind
recognising that local requests form the best basis for the provision of
services and material.
Deanery and diocesan networks enrich the experiences of adults and enhance
adult Faith Formation groups within parishes as well as modelling Gospel
endeavour in universal Church.
