Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us 160-163: Diocesan Plan and Strategy

The US Bishops’ second objective for dioceses advocates “a clear strategy for developing parish adult faith formation leaders, teams, and catechists.” Nothing greatly specific is given; the document Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us acknowledges “the specifics of strategies will vary from diocese to diocese.” But help of some kind is expected. As with the previous objective, a handful of indicators is outlined:

  • (Building) community and connections among parish adult faith formation leaders, and it provides for their ongoing formation and support. (161)

  • (Supporting) parish adult faith formation teams in various ways. (162)

  • (Offering) formation opportunities for catechists of adults. (163)

Dioceses have more access to people and resources than most parishes. It only makes sense that they organize most of the efforts in forming leaders, teams, and catechists.
