Catholic Faith Formation education is more than the handing on of religious instruction. Its goal is growth in faith, which implies both formation and transformation, leading one to live out the Gospel as part of a believing community. Religious education is a lifelong process. Everyone including the Catechist, is always a learner. Catholic education is an expression of the mission entrusted by Jesus to the Church. Through education, the church seeks to prepare its members to proclaim the Good News and to translate this proclamation into action.
I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship. Do not comform yourself to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect. ~Romans 12: 1-2
