Office of Faith Formation

“And every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Phil. 2:11) 

The mission of the Office of Faith Formation is to support, assist and guide the catechetical apostolate carried out in the religious education programs in the parishes of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington.

Through the work of catechesis, the Catholic Church hands on the faith that she believes, celebrates, and lives to every generation so that people can enter into communion and intimacy with Jesus Christ.
