Studies and Seminars

Saint Andrew strives to provide adult faith formation opportunities to parishioners here and in surrounding Catholic communities. To that end, our parish is proud to be hosting the Class of St. Padre Pio - Elk River as they complete the Archbishop Harry J. Flynn Catechetical Institute. One hundred and forty-four adults are a part of this program, with roughly a third coming from our parish!

We also have a parish-wide subscription to FORMED, a tremendous collection of Catholic movies, videos, studies, audio presentations, ebooks and more, available to you free of charge on any web-enabled device:

If you are interested in any of our ongoing ministry or prayer opportunities, please visit Get Involved. Additional adult formation opportunities are listed below.
