The Church is faithful to her deepest identity when she brings all her considerable resources to bear on proclaiming the Christian message completely and authentically to all the nations. The presentation of the Gospel requires the best efforts of the Church at every level and the tireless dedication of the entire community of the faithful.
- National Directory for Catechesis, p. 276
The Office of Lifelong Faith Formation exists to serve those who serve the Catholic Church in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland, especially those who serve our parishes through evangelization and catechesis.
"We wish to serve for the good of the people and humanity giving room to He who is Life."
