FAITH FORMATION AT ST. FRANCIS XAVIER PARISH, CAMROSE (2012 to 2020)

St. Francis Xavier Parish, Camrose has been striving to strengthen the faith of all of our parishioners by offering numerous Faith Formation opportunities from 2012 through 2019. Seeking first the Kingdom of God and prayerfully listening to the Word of God, we begin to see & hear that the Holy Spirit is preparing us in a new way for His dynamic work of re-building & renewing the Catholic Church in Camrose. The Holy Spirit is carrying out His mission of sanctification by bringing our hearts under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Since May 2019, we are now at home in our beautiful new church and we are excited to see what God has in store for us in the future!

In addition to parish missions, retreat talks and guest presenters at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, we have introduced regular adult faith formation studies to the parish community. We offer the very best of Catholic small group video study programs covering a wide range of Catholic teachings. Our classes include group discussion, video presentations from top presenters and questions for at-home study, reflection, application and prayer. These excellent Catholic bible studies and other Catholic adult catechetical programs have enhanced the faith life of an ever increasing number of participants.
