This is a process by which persons interested in the Catholic faith, journey toward full initiation by study and faith sharing. RCIA is continuing in some form throughout the year. In the summer we have inquiry households, where people interested in learning about the faith are encouraged to ask questions. Starting in the fall we have the Catechesis meetings that teach more formally about God; His love and the teachings of the Catholic Church. Members of the parish are needed to sponsor each person going through the program. In the spring the catechumens and candidates receive the sacraments (Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation) and are welcomed fully into the Church. The year following this is the period of mystagogy or a continuation for learning about the Catholic Church and ways to practice the faith. Volunteers are needed to serve in a variety of ways from helping with dinners to being sponsors.
