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 an active ministry in which adults and young adults alike are invited to explore and grow in their faith through many programs and formation opportunities, including Bible study, discussion groups, retreats, marriage enrichment and more.

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. Sessions are announced through the parish bulletin and are listed below.

Classes

No classes are scheduled at this time.

Marriage Enrichment

Date Your Mate

St. Francis Borgia and St. Joseph parishes are collaborating for another season of “Date Your Mate.” This is an opportunity for you to get together on Saturday evenings with other couples and listen to a topic relevant to your relationship. All couples are welcome – those who are married, engaged and those who might be just getting to know each other.

After attending Mass, munching on appetizers and listening to a presentation, you go out on a date of your own choosing with your mate to further build your relationship. This program is for certain Saturdays (roughly once per month) from October through May.

Learn how marriage is a lot like pottery, as you are shaped and molded. These are two separate sessions, eight couples per session, and a cost of $60 per couple. You will be able to make 2-3 different pots on the potters wheel as Deacon Scott Wiese shares some reflections from his experiences at the Potters Wheel last summer.

We wrap up the season with Trivia Night. It’s a great night of fellowship, laughter and trivia, with a valuable prize for the winning table. Gather your team and save the date.
