RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Would you like to explore the Catholic faith in an even deeper way? Would you like to begin the journey of entering the Church? Then you are invited to join RCIA.

The parish RCIA program begins on September 12. Classes are held each Monday evening from 7:00-9:00 pm in the Parish Center. 

The Rite of Christian Initiation is not a "sign-up" for becoming a Catholic. It is a time of no obligation, during which we pursue the Truth and the Meaning of life, answers to eternal questions, and the truths, teachings, and practices of the Catholic Church.
