RCIA

Sometimes being Catholic is challenging.  I have found that it is more difficult when we do not understand the richness that underlies our Faith Tradition.

Today, I invite you to consider joining me, Deacon Larry and Sister Connie for an opportunity to grow in an awareness of the beauty of our Catholic Faith through a consideration of a variety of topics.  For some, these ‘classes’ are part of the Catholic Church’s way of initiating new members into the faith and for others it is an opportunity to strengthen the faith of those who are seeking to grow in their relationship with God. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (commonly known as R.C.I.A.), will help adults become familiar with Catholic teachings and practices, get acquainted with people of the parish, and get involved in service within the parish or the wider community. These classes are for all of you. We hope you will join us.
