Church’s faith formation programmes must change

Brent Augustus, a parishioner from Diego Martin, shares his concerns and makes some suggestions on the Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan.

I attended a parish consultation on the Pastoral Plan and over the past 5–6 months, I have read articles about or related to the Pastoral Plan and life in the community and how it is intended to change and improve the general faithful.

I am concerned that many of the initiatives and programmes are targeting a mature faithful. From my experience and talking to several of my peers (all over 40 years old) I firmly believe the target audience of our Pastoral Plan and Reform must be significantly broadened with a greater emphasis and focus on families with teenaged (Confirmation) and younger (First Communion) children.
