Yet despite admirable documents that state adult catechesis is central to the church's mission, such as the General Directory for Catechesis, and the U.S. bishops' pastoral letter Our Hearts Were Burning within Us, adult formation has never achieved the priority it deserves, nor commanded the resources it needs in order to flourish. [...] the four classic, interrelated aspects of Christian formation-hearing the message of Christ expressed through Scripture and tradition (kerygma); living out with others the new relationship wrought by our redemption (koinonia); taking an active part in the public worship of God in Christ (leitourgia); and engagement in apostolic works of service (diaconia)-thrive far better in a parish than in a school, and among groups that constitute communities rather than in classes.
