Adult Faith Formation

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in adult learning classes. Your Catholic faith formation is a life-long journey. Our classes are lively with  interactive discussion and full materials provided. Some classes are free, others require a fee to cover materials. They are ongoing most of the year, with day or night sessions. Parish wide Missions with outside speakers are offered several times a year (including Advent and Lent).

All registrations are done online through the link below our class descriptions. Once you have registered you will receive a confirming email. Your class facilitator will reach out to you a few weeks before class begins. Our classes are ongoing most of the year. Check back for new offerings.

St. Benedict offers many ways to help you grow in your faith:

Forming Catholic Conscience

Voting with a Catholic conscience, we are often asked what we as Catholic’s are supposed to do and how we decide who to vote for. Over the next several weeks we will have literature in the lobby regarding forming your Catholic Conscience. We will never tell you who to vote for, but the materials can help you to form your own decision based on solid Catholic Christian values.

Here is a link to a video message from Ascension Presents by Fr. Mike Schmitz about what it means to live in a democratic society. He talks about “the burden of freedom” and explains why true freedom requires wisdom, virtue, and a thorough understanding of the story of our nation and the world.

What Constitutes a Practicing Catholic?

We hear this all the time-Are you a practicing Catholic? How do you know? What does it really mean to be fully practicing your faith? Fr. Mike Schmitz explains the basics pretty well in this video from Ascension Presents. Six minutes worth your time! Don’t just say you are Catholic, live your faith with meaning!


We often have missions as a concentrated learning opportunity wrapped around a particular subject or liturgical season.
