Baptism preparation for parents

Before a child is baptized at St. Francis Borgia, we ask that the parent(s) pre-register for a Baptism Preparation class.  See the Baptism page for details.

Becoming a Catholic

Each year St. Francis Borgia Parish has the privilege and pleasure of welcoming new members into the Catholic Church through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults: RCIA. For information, see the Becoming a Catholic page.

Confirmation for Adults

For baptized, practicing Catholics who have made First Reconciliation (Confession) and First Eucharist but were never confirmed, adult Confirmation preparation is offered. See the Adult Confirmation page for details.

Programs and Formation Opportunities

Everyone is on a life-long journey of faith formation. In order to grow in our understanding of our faith and how to live our faith and share our faith, we need to continually learn and be formed in faith. Watch for Adult Faith Formation opportunities offered by St. Francis Borgia Parish throughout the year.

Fall 2021 Bible Study: Ephesians (Oct. 6 – Dec. 1)

NOTE: Morning session added (Oct. 13 – Dec. 8)

Discover your inheritance as a child of God in Ephesians, an 8-part Bible study featuring video presenter Jeff Cavins.

Ephesians was one of St. Paul’s most widely circulated writings because of its powerful, practical instructions for disciples of Christ. In fact, its six short chapters contain some of the most discussed passages in the New Testament. Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance examines several themes that are of special concern to Christians in today’s culture and society—the nature of marriage, the purpose and role of the Church, the preeminence of grace in God’s plan, and the reality of spiritual warfare.

Presenter Jeff Cavins explores what Paul’s letter to the Ephesians tells us about the nature of the Church—as a body, as a household, as a mystery, as a communion, as a bride, and as an army. Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance shows the treasures that await us as adopted sons and daughters in the family of God. Through your participation, you will not only discover your unique gifts and calling as a member of Christ’s Church, but you will also help us to grow in fellowship as a parish as we grow closer to Christ together.

Participants of Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance will meet every week to view an engaging video presentation, followed by a time of lively group discussion and fellowship.
