Faith Formation For Adults
Being Catholic Today
People have chosen to enter the Catholic Church for various reasons. Members of the Church have different understandings of what makes them Catholic or why they are Catholic. However, there is a common thread that binds all Catholics together. Catholics belong to a Christ-centered faith community that views Jesus Christ as the foundation. Catholics share Jesus' vision and model their lives after Jesus' example of love. Catholics are called to care for one another and to use their unique gifts and talents for the good of the community and the world.
Why be Catholic?
The Catholic Church is unlike any other organization on earth. In fact, it is more accurate to call the Church an "organism" – a living body: Christ's body. To become Catholic is to become part of His body – a process that begins with Baptism and continues forever. Being Catholic in today's world provides great challenges and opportunities for personal growth and self awareness, and also a solid foundation for a life of community and relationship with God.
