Fides et Ratio Study Group

Fides et Ratio — Latin for “Faith & Reason”–is an expression of the desire of parishioners at St. Francis de Sales to deepen their understanding of their faith. Through reading and conversation we seek to understand what the church believes so that we can live that belief and share it with others. So far we have had a series on the documents of the Second Vatican Council and Catholic Social Teaching. For more information or to join, contact Terence Sweeney at

The group generally meets on the first Tuesday of the month.
