It has become evident, particularly in recent years, that there is a wide difference between those who enter the process of RCIA in a great state of readiness and those who need detailed catechesis. In addition in the official rite as promulgated by the Joint Commission of Catholic Bishops there is support for differentiating in the RCIA process between catechumens and already catechized candidates. This project initiates this process.

Collaboration of faith formation efforts conserves the energy of the local parish, and connecting Catholics of different levels of spiritual maturity creates synergy in the community life of the Church. This project addresses two needs: (1) For Catholics newly initiated into the Sacraments to connect with an established community within the parish for ongoing formation. (2) For Catholics already in such a community to avoid the stale isolation from the rest of the Church by participating in the lives of the new members of the congregation.

Adult Faith Formation Ministry
There is a need for an ongoing ministry to deliver timely and worthwhile opportunities for faith development and exposure to Adult Christian topics: Sacraments, the Mass, Our Church since Vatican 2, Lenten Prep, Marriage and Annulment, enriching our vocations, Prayer and Christology. This project is to establish an awareness that goes beyond a program of on-going pertinent education and enrichment opportunities for parishioners. An important step is recognizing the fact that most people only spend 3 % of their time at “Church”. The important part of adult Christian witness is reaching people where they are and increasing their awareness of God by increasing their thirst for things of God. People come to Church to know God more deeply and we must offer them a wide variety of ways to do so.

My 3rd year project was developed to provide Faith Formation at a deeper level to people involved in ministry at Good Shepherd parish of Orlando. I used the “Called and Gifted for the New Millenium” document that was written by the USCCB as the foundation for the program, and developed four sessions that center on the four callings identified in this document: Call to Adulthood, Call to Holiness, Call to Ministry, and Call to Community. The four sessions allow for group interaction, reflection, and a renewal of commitment within each ministry, and is being conducted across our ministries, including Ministers of the Word, Eucharist Ministers, and Music Ministers, etc.

To get the parishioners to look into the Bible with a basic understanding of where to start. How each bible may be translated to our understanding?

When dealing with the human mind each person can draw different meaning from one verse in the bible.

This project also hoped to encourage those people already involved in the apostolic groups of the Spanish community to become more active in the mission of the church handing down the faith to others outside their small faith communities.
