Adult Faith Formation Vision Statement

The vision of adult faith formation for the Diocese of Green Bay is one that challenges our parishes to become more dynamic communities that support lifelong learning and growth in discipleship by placing adult faith formation at the center of parish life. Our vision is of a diocese made up of parishes were all of our adult members are immersed in lifelong catechesis and the mission of building up the Kingdom of God.

Role of the Diocese of Green Bay:

The primary role of the Diocese of Green Bay is to affirm the priority of adult catechesis and to provide leadership, personnel, services and resources to assist parishes in developing adult faith formation programs.

The Diocese of Green Bay is enthusiastically committed to the vision of Adult Faith Formation and to supporting parish efforts to implement the Bishop’s pastoral plan.


We Affirm:

  • The priority of lifelong Catholic education as the center of our Diocesan and parish catechetical efforts.
  • That the parish itself is an environment of adult faith formation. Every activity and relationship is a formative experience for learners and has the potential to form mature disciples.
  • The call to place adult faith formation at the center of the Church’s catechetical mission involves a conversion and a shift in priorities, thinking and commitments.
  • The importance of the family in our adult faith formation efforts.
  • The connection between adult catechesis and stewardship and the challenge to Catholics to give of prayer, service and sharing to advance the mission of the Church.
