This morning, the Office of Christian Formation hosted “A New Vision for Maturing Adult Faith Formation,” a workshop presented by Dr. Richard P. Johnson, Ph.D., PCSG. The workshop focused on providing successful maturing adult faith formation that lifts parishioners up, helps them stay connected with God and highlights the positive aspects of later life.
As 21 percent of registered parish adults in the Diocese of Richmond are over 60 years of age, our offices continue working to meet the needs of our parishioners.
A total of 90 clergy and deacons, adult faith formation leaders, parish pastoral care coordinators and diocesan adult care facility staff from 47 parishes and six adult care facilities participated.
In addition, the diocese continues to expand our Distance Learning Network! The workshop was livestreamed from the Pastoral Center to three remote sites: Jubilee House, Abingdon; St. Andrew, Roanoke; and Holy Trinity, Norfolk.
