Adult Faith Formation

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of the Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which the community helps adults to discern the call of the Holy Spirit and respond in faith. Through the RCIA, our faith community welcomes adults to full membership in the Church.

Who is the RCIA process for?
If you are 18 or over and have not been baptized
If you are baptized in another Christian tradition and would like to become a Catholic
If you are a baptized adult Catholic and have not made your First Communion and Confirmation, but would like to do so, please contact the Parish Office.

RCIA sessions begin in early fall and continue through the year, culminating at the Easter Vigil Service on Holy Saturday with the celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation. RCIA meets weekly on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm. The entire parish community is welcome to attend.

Special Opportunity

Fellow parishioners — join the AFF group in viewing the video series about St. Joseph from Real Life Catholic. Each episode is a stand-alone lesson which can be viewed without having attended a previous episode.  Please join us in the school lunch room on Mondays at 7pm for an episode which lasts just under one hour. You may also wish to stay for the 20-30 minute Q&A which follows.  We normally conclude at 8:30pm.  Refreshments and snacks are included. The series runs from September 13 – November 8.
