Recommended Adult Formation Resources

This page provides the Redeemer community with an eclectic collection of resources for family formation that we’ve found along our journey as Christian formation specialists. It’s brand new, and we are always looking for good suggestions of links to add.

We find many icons for personal inspiration on this site and highly suggest them for adult or youth Confirmation gifts.  You might recognize some of the Skete icons from seeing them at the Redemer.
