Across the Diocese of Charleston there are many and varied opportunities for adult religious education and faith formation. Bible studies, book clubs, parish missions, series with speakers, prayer groups, retreat programs, and so on abound. In addition, parishioners at large are often invited to join catechists at workshops offered on parish, deanery, and diocesan levels. The Office of Catechesis and Christian Initiation can at times provide a speaker and also can recommend speakers and audio-visual resources for adult faith formation.
