Resources for formation commissions, committees, clergy and council members..
In the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, the pastoral council of each parish is to have a Formation Commission or Committee to provide guidance and support for the formational mission of the parish. This is a standing committee of the pastoral council that collaborates with the pastor and staff on programs of evangelization and catechesis. The members help develop and promote opportunities for lifelong faith formation aimed at personal conversion and growth in faith.
The commission may have another name, such as Christian Formation Committee, Religious Education Commission or Lifelong Faith Formation Committee.

Archdiocesan Parish and School Policy Manual
The parish is the preeminent place for the catechesis of adults, youth, and children. "Knowledge of the faith, liturgical life, the following of Christ are all a gift of the Spirit which are received in prayer, and similarly a duty of spiritual and moral study and witness..." Pastors have the duty to provide catechesis; parishioners have a reciprocal duty to participate in and support the catechetical activities of the parish. Parish catechetical efforts should be in harmony with the catechetical goals and objectives of the diocese.
