Adult Evangelization

Adult Evangelization

There are many forms and audiences for evangelization in a parish. But, the primary concern of parish catechetical leaders is adult evangelization and catechesis. As the Church teaches us:

“[T]he catechesis of adults … is the principal form of catechesis, because it is addressed to persons who have the greatest responsibilities and the capacity to live the Christian message in its fully developed form.” (John Paul II, Catechesi Tradendae, no. 43)

“In order that the parish may succeed in activating effectively the mission of evangelization … Adult catechesis must be given priority.” (General Directory for Catechesis, no. 258)

“[A]dult catechesis … is the axis around which revolves the catechesis of childhood and adolescence as well as that of old age.” (General Directory for Catechesis, no. 275)


Our team is here to help renew your outreach to adults. They are your first mission field, and if we serve them well, then they can be sent to the other mission fields (youth, young adults, men, women, families, the elderly, etc.) to proclaim the Gospel, radiate Christ, and renew your parish.
