Adult Faith Formation Mission Statement
Cure of Ars Adult Faith Formation Commission seeks to motivate and empower the adults of our parish to continually pursue a deeper understanding of their relationship with Jesus Christ and a deeper knowledge of His teachings that come to us through the Catholic Church.
Serving at the discretion and direction of our Pastor, our mission is informative as well as formative in that we plan, promote, and support opportunities in Cure of Ars Parish that assist in the continued faith development of our adults in their journey to spiritual maturity.
The foundation of our mission is "a complete and systematic catechesis that nurtures a profound life-long conversion of the whole person and that set forth comprehensive contemporary synthesis of the faith as presented in the Catechism of the Catholic Church... that will help adults experience the transforming power of grace and grasp the integrity and beauty of the truths of our Faith."
To Teach as Jesus Did is the center of our catechesis. Jesus taught adults and played with children. On the Road to Emmaus, the disciples' hearts were burning as Jesus broke open the Scriptures for them. They found their world made new. The pathway of their lives opened from confusion and despair into deeper conviction and hope. They grew stronger in love, knowledge, commitment, and zeal.
“Love for Jesus and His Church must be the passion of our lives!” (Blessed John Paul II)
