Adult Faith Formation

Formation in our Catholic faith is a life-long process!  As we continue to age and encounter new life experiences, we are constantly being called to examine our relationship with God and to grow as disciples of Christ.  St. Francis Xavier Church offers a number of opportunities for parishioners of all ages to participate in forming their faith through study, prayer, and reflection.



The Well – Adult Faith Series

St. Francis has established a wonderful collaboration with the The Well Spirituality Center, led by the Sisters of St. Joseph. Many of the talks hosted through their Adult Faith Series are free to St. Francis Xavier parishioners.  Click for The Well Happenings. 

Bible Study 

Bible Study is hosted periodically by Sr. Marianne Race, CSJ on Thursday Mornings, 9:45-11:15 a.m. in Unity Hall for 10 sessions in each series. For details about this Bible Study and an evening series hosted at The Well, please email Sr. Marianne Race, CSJ, or call 708-363-6728.
