ADULTS WHO WISH TO JOIN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, SEEK BAPTISM, AND OR ADULT CATHOLICS WHO WISH TO RECEIVE THE SACRAMENTS OF HOLY COMMUNION AND CONFIRMATION PLEASE READ BELOW....
RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION/EDUCATION/FORMATION FOR ADULTS- RCIA
Anyone over the age of 16, whether Catholic or not, is encouraged to enter the RCIA Process, (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). This comprehensive program runs all year, but classes usually run from September until May or June. Much more than simple instruction, this is an all encompassing process which includes spirituality, prayer, formation, education, one on one sponsorship and instruction, mentoring, service opportunities and more. Those who have been a part of this process have always shared how it has enhanced their spiritual and faith life, even if they opted not to receive the sacraments. A person is free to opt out at any time, but we feel once one enters this process they usually find it most informative and enriching. Classes are held in the evening once a week in our Adult Faith Formation Center. For more information, please call the Parish Office. Our prayers are with you as your discern your faith life!
