Adult Faith

St. Francis of Assisi Adult Faith offers gathered events, online learning, and other opportunities to grow in faith, including prayer, faith sharing, retreats and discernment sessions, learning and study groups, small group community building, and opportunities to inquire about the Catholic faith or Become Catholic.

Adults who would like to develop a personal plan for ongoing faith formation, can meet with faith formation staff to complete a faith formation map based on the six tasks of catechesis, as outlined in the National Directory for Catechesis.
