RCIA and the Search for God

 Are you searching for God? Do you, or someone you know, feel a calling toward the Catholic Church?

 RCIA—the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults—is a program for adults and teen agers who are considering entering the Catholic Church and have not been baptized, for baptized non-Catholic Christians who wish to join the Catholic Church, or for baptized Catholics who wish to complete their Sacraments of Initiation (Holy Eucharist and Confirmation). We also welcome Catholics who would like to study their faith more deeply.

 In RCIA, we talk about the presence of God in our lives and in the world.We share our faith and pray. We study Scripture and how it speaks to us today. We learn about the Church, its beliefs, and its sacraments. We explore what it means to be Catholic and to live a Christian life. We learn from each other as we journey together on a pilgrimage of faith.

RCIA sessions will begin on Monday, October 5. Virtual sessions will run fron 7:00 p.m  until 8:30 p.m. We will reevaluate whether to continue with virtual sessions or move towards a hybrid model at the end of this year.

Please consider RCIA if you have been contemplating enteringthe Church or completing your Sacraments of Initiation.You may know someone who has inquired about the Church or has not completed the Sacraments of Initiation. Spread the good news!
