Jesus: The Foundation of Faith Formation
The mystery of Christ and the redemption brought about by Him is the central point of faith formation. This means that the heart of faith formation is the person of Jesus of Nazareth and “it is intended to stress that at the heart of catechesis we find, in essence, a person, the person of Jesus of Nazareth” . Moreover, the faith formation leads a person into the mystery of Christ with in all its entire dimensions.
The Purpose of Faith Formation
The Church’s faith formation aims to help the faithful of all ages to grow in both human and Christian maturity, enriching the whole of life with the leaven of the Gospel. Consequently, appropriate goals and content will embrace all the faith dimensions of a young adult life – for example, understanding and communicating the faith, skills needed for personal growth, the experience of family life, relationships, public service, and concern for the common good.
