RCIA prepares adults to receive the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist) and fully enter the Catholic Church. It involves a formation of mind and heart as participants learn about Catholic faith and practice and become integrated into our parish community. Participation is open to anyone, baptized or not, who desires to know more about the Catholic Church. RCIA is held in the lower level beginning at 7:00 pm every Thursday.
Volunteers are needed to sponsor each person in the program, to lead Gospel reflections with the group on Sunday morning, and to help with Thursday night teaching sessions.
