Baptized for Life
Baptized for Life is a Lilly Endowment Inc. funded grant initiative that nurtured participating congregations across six dioceses through a baptismal and vocational lens, focusing on catechumenal basics: Lectionary + Liturgy + Life. Baptized for Life (BFL) affirmed that confident Christian vocations are formed around scripture, community, and the sacraments for the purpose of living faithfully in the world (vocation) every day. Metrics like average Sunday attendance describe who is there. Without intentional formation, they say nothing about what a congregation is becoming.
