Designed to help people develop and deepen a relationship with Jesus Christ, Faith Formation catechesis presents the faith in such a way that people’s hearts and minds are turned to Christ and His Church. The theme of this year’s event is “Old Wisdom for a New Age,” or “Sabiduria Antigua para una Nueva Era.”

There will be 5 workshops offered in the morning and 5 workshops in the afternoon.  One Level I certification class will also be offered.   Some of the topics include:  Augustine’s Advice to Catechists, Doing the RCIA Rites Right, Ways to Pray from Your Heart and Evangelización como un modelo para la catequesis.
