Our Adult Formation/Education ministry:

  • Provides baptism preparation classes for parents (see the Baptism page)
  • Welcomes new members into the Catholic Church through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults: RCIA (see the Becoming a Catholic page)
  • Offers preparation for adult confirmation (see the Adult Confirmation page)

In addition, Adult Formation/Education is a ministry in which adults are invited to explore and grow in their faith through programs and formation opportunities.

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.
