Ongoing Adult Formation

Small Faith Sharing Groups

Small groups gather to read and reflect on Scripture, share faith through conversation and determine some small practice by which to live their faith. These groups are coordinated by the Adult Faith Formation Committee. During COVID they met via Zoom.  Contact the office [email protected]

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Parishes welcome new members into the Catholic Church through a process of education, faith sharing, and rituals known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).

This process includes several stages marked by prayer, study, and discussion.  Included in the process are several Rites, which take place within the context of the Mass.  The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) describes the RCIA as a process in which participants "undergo . . . conversion as they study the Gospel, profess faith in Jesus and the Catholic Church, and receive the sacraments . . . The RCIA process follows the ancient practice of the Church and was restored by the Second Vatican Council as the normal way adults prepare for baptism." We plan on filming a video series to be able to continue during COVID n this process.  COntact Fr Dave for more information!  [email protected]

The RCIA process can be adapted to meet the specific needs of children and youth.
