We would like to invite anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic faith to come and discover what we believe as Catholics. The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults or RCIA program explores the faith in a small group format. Our RCIA program will begin again in the fall of 2019. Classes are held most Wednesday evening from 7:00—9:00pm at the church beginning on September 4, 2019.
The RCIA program is also for those who were baptized Catholic, but did not receive any or all of the other Sacraments (Reconciliation, Eucharist, Confirmation) as a child.
Finally, for those of you who would just like a “refresher” course in what we believe as Catholics, you are welcome to join us!
Still wondering if this is something that you should take part in? Listen to this encouraging witness from two of our 2018 RCIA participants!
