Information For Growth: Adult Faith Formation Survey (IFG)

This tool is a self-assessment survey designed to assist individual adults in evaluating their personal level of religious knowledge and spirituality. It is centered on the six dimensions outlined in the U.S. Bishops’ document, Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us: A Pastoral Plan for Adult Formation in the United States:

  • knowledge of the faith
  • liturgical life
  • moral formation
  • prayer
  • communal life
  • missionary spirit


Score Reports

The score reports provide a summary of a person’s cognitive understanding of the six dimensions of adult faith in Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us as well as attitudes in these same areas. The reports provide references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church to encourage further study and growth.

Participants will receive an individualized and confidential score report. The group coordinator (if applicable) will receive a group score report. All reports are sent electronically via email.
