Adult Faith Formation

Deepening your faith

Faith is a constant gift from God. It is offered to us at our baptism and over and over again throughout our lives. It grows and deepens as we experience life.

Join The Basilica community as we learn and journey with one another in our Catholic faith.

RCIA Topics

Anyone is welcome to join the weekly RCIA sessions.  They are Tuesday evening from September through the Easter Season.  Each week we bring in professors from the many Catholic colleges and universities in the Twin Cities area.  These presentations are outstanding and are open to anyone interested in attending. Presentations are 6:30-8:30pm.  You are welcome to visit, listen, learn, and experience good theology. 

RCIA will begin on Tuesday, September 10, 2019. 

Adult Bible Study

Bible studies are offered periodically throughout the year. 

Theology Day

Join us for these sessions presented by scholars from Saint John’s School of Theology-Seminary. Also presented at Saint John’s University and other locations in the Twin Cities and out-of-state. Click here for the full schedule, and see below for information about the upcoming session at The Basilica.

Minneapolis Multi-Faith Network

(formerly known as the Minneapolis Interfaith Forum)

Through a new organization called The Minneapolis Multi-Faith Network (MMN), we are working alongside downtown Minneapolis religious communities on some of the most pressing social justice matters this city is facing. This multi-faith network builds friendships and opportunities to learn about others' faith while participants pursue the common good together.   Click here to view a short video about MMN.
