The Catholic Church regards adult catechesis as the chief form of catechesis because "the act of faith is a free response to God's grace; and maximum human freedom only comes with the self-possession and responsibility of adulthood." according to the National Catechetical Directory for U.S. Catholics. In addition it says, "rapid changes in society and the Church make adult catechisis especial important today. Adults need help in dealing with their problems and communicating their faith to the young."
St. Theresa is pleased to offer a rich variety of adult formation opportunities. We like to think that everything we do here is evangelization and catechesis. So, while there are a number of adult studies, groups and formation opportunities listed here, nearly all our ministries, whether liturgical, music or parish groups, by their very nature help us grow in our faith.
