Adult Faith Formation

Adult Faith Formation

Throughout the year, St. William’s will be offering several adult educational opportunities, through small groups, in accordance with the synodal process, and periodic guest speakers to speak on different faith issues.  Watch the weekly bulletin for more details!

Adult Education is also offered at the Archdiocesan level with programs such as the Archbishop Harry J. Flynn Catechetical Institute, and the School of Discipleship. More information on these programs is available at https://saintpaulseminary.org/ci/

If you are not a baptized Catholic and are interested in exploring the Catholic faith, the Church has a program called OCIA (Order of Catholic Initiation of Adults) through which adults can learn about the Catholic Faith and take steps to being in full communion with the Catholic Church. If you are interested in OCIA, please contact the parish office at (763) 571-5600. 

The Catholic Faith. On Demand. St. William's has a Parish Subscription that is available to all parishioners. To learn how to access formed.org, click here.
