Adult Faith Formation

Resources from the Archdiocese of Hartford

The Center for Catholic Education and Formation has begun to curate two different menus of resources:

  • The first is for those who minister to adults in faith formation.
  • The second is for those adults seeking faith formation of their own.

These documents are continually being edited and expanded by The Center as we become aware of more resources and explore new options. We especially welcome any suggestions of resources, programs, or tools that you have experienced. 

Please contact us to share feedback!
