Adult Religious Education

The mission of the Department of Adult Religious Education is to "make disciples" (Mt 28,19) by making the Catholic faith known, loved and lived among adults and young adults by helping them to become true disciples of Jesus Christ through leadership and faith formation opportunities.

The Logo

The logo is the image of a fishing boat (Peter's barc, the Church) with people sitting on board (disciples) and a dragging net (fishers of men) in the middle of a lake (the world or life) with Christ standing as the Teacher. 

The rising sun in the background symbolizes a new awakening, a new diocese. The theme of the logo is "Duc in Altum!" (Lk 5,4), go to the deep!, was inspired by the apostolic letter Novo Millenio Ineunte ("at the beginning of the new millenium") written by Pope John Paul II to call all Catholics to set out into the deep and renew their mission for a New Evangelization from within the Church to the whole world.
