Office of Evangelization and Faith Formation

 

The Office of Evangelization and Faith Formation of the Diocese of Orange proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ in obedience to the Great Commission (Mt 28:16-20).  Parish faith formation imparts the saving truth of Jesus Christ faithfully, assessing the needs of individual parishes, promoting dialogue and networking for parish staff members involved in all Faith Formation Ministries.

Pope Francis has given us a new inspiration for the New Evangelization: “Every Christian is a missionary to the extent that he or she has encountered the love of God in Christ Jesus: we no longer say that we are “disciples” and “missionaries” but rather that are always “missionary disciples.”  (The Joy of the Gospel)

The Office of Evangelization and Faith Formation especially, through Emmaus Institute, will equip and empower catechists, pastoral leaders, and all parishioners to evangelize and shape a Church made up of missionary disciples.
