The Archdiocese of Boston offers a faith formation and evangelization program for adults to explore the richness of their Catholic faith, deepen their relationship with Christ and share more fully in the mission of the Church. Simply titled Why Catholic? , the four-year program is solidly based on Sacred Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Participants receive in-depth information and insight into core beliefs, the sacraments, morality, and prayer.
Why Catholic? , developed by Renew International, is offered in Boston in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Chinese, Lithuanian, Haitian -Creole and includes workshops, retreats, and meetings as small communities to share how we relate Catholic teaching to everyday life.
Successfully implemented in over 1,300 parishes in the United States, the program covers the basic teachings of the Church in terms of what we believe, celebrate, live, and pray. Throughout the entire process the program provides direction for strong evangelization outreach.
