INTERESTED IN BECOMING CATHOLIC?

We talk about RCIA all the time—that's because we want to make sure you know what it means. Simply put, it's the way folks with questions about the Catholic church learn about us (and if they desire, how they become Catholic).

We're extremely proud of the fact that SFdS runs one of the few year-yound processes in New York City. That means anyone can begin their journey at any point in the year. We gather every Monday at 7:00PM in the parish house and we can't wait to meet you. Begin your faith journey with us at St. Francis de Sales!

NEW! THEOLOGICAL BOOK DISCUSSION

We’re starting a “Socratic Circle” at SFDS! Our pastoral staff has been meeting informally to discuss theological works for quite some time as a way to keep ourselves theologically literate and up-to-date. We thought we’d try opening it up to all parishioners interested in adult faith formation. We’ll begin in the New Year with Elizabeth Johnson’s Quest for the Living God: Mapping Frontiers in the Theology of God.
