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!

Óscar Romero is canonized! Get to know our newest saint. Our reading selection for November is: The Violence of Love by Óscar Romero

Three short years transformed Archbishop Óscar Romero from a conservative defender of the status quo into one of the church's most outspoken voices of the oppressed. Though silenced by an assassin's bullet, his spirit—and the challenge of his life—lives on.
