Wednesday Night Adult Formation starts September 13th!!

We are gearing up for another year of Wednesday evening prayer and formation for adults and are thrilled to announce that we will have some additional “Going Deeper” mini-courses to offer this year.

Starting September 13th, we will gather in the chapel at 6:30pm for communal, Lectionary-based prayer until 6:50pm. After that time, the “Going Deeper” participants will break out into their respective classes while the “Basics” participants remain in the chapel for their presentations. See below for the information on both the “Exploring the Basics” and “Going Deeper” offerings (some require registration). Please click on the tabs below for additional information and to register. We hope you will join us!

 

“Exploring the Source and Summit of Our Faith”

Saturday, October 14, 9:00 to 11:30 am 
OR
Tuesday, November 14, 6:30 to 9:00 pm

The Formation staff, Liturgy staff, and Liturgy Committee have been working to prepare a unique Formation opportunity for our parishoners. These sessions are open to all St. Francis of Assisi parishoners, and we would like to extend a special invitation to you! We invite you to engage more deeply in the traditions, meanings and symbolism behind the Mass, the Church, and the Sacraments through the breakout sessions offered at this event. This opportunity for prayer, fellowship, and formation will challenge and refresh you as you continue along your faith journey. There is no cost for this event.

During registration, you’ll choose two breakout sessions to attend. A description of each breakout session offered is provided in the full agenda (below).
