call to unity, ministry, and holiness

in pursuit of Christ’s mission: “Go, tell the Good News to all the world!”
for deeper understanding of the Catholic tradition, fostering growth in the spiritual life, and developing skills necessary for effective leadership in ministry.
through a continual and dedicated focus on Church teaching and Gospel values as a response to the everyday and lifelong needs of the People of God.
for pastors and staff as they minister to the multicultural church of Northern Nevada.
The Diocese of Reno recognizes that Adult Faith Formation must be a priority in order for the faithful to continually mature as Catholic Christians and grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. Our parishes continually strive to become more dynamic communities of faith, where adult members are immersed in lifelong catechesis and are convinced of the mission in building up the Kingdom of God. Adult Faith Formation is not a program; it is a process, an approach, a philosophy which evolves as the needs of our people evolve. The office of Faith Formation is to affirm the priority of adult catechesis and to provide leadership, worship, personnel, services, and resources to assist parishes in developing adult faith formation processes. The office is enthusiastically committed to an ongoing, dynamic vision of Adult Faith Formation as well as a supporting parish efforts to implement the mandates of our 2nd Diocesan Synod.
