Q – If you are leading a group, do you need also to be a student in ongoing formation?
A – Each community is different with different circumstances and factors, such as its meeting place, the facilities, number of members, and other considerations. They must decide what the best approach is for them. Maybe the people leading classes need to be rotated so they also get a chance to be in ongoing formation classes. Maybe you devise an ongoing formation process that allows their participation outside the actual session time. It is good for those in initial formation to get instruction from many different community members in order to get to know them.
Those involved as catechists in initial formation are also engaged in ongoing formation.
