Bible Studies and Seasonal Faith Sharing Groups
As intentional disciples, we are called to constantly grow in our faith. To that end, we periodically offer workshops, bible studies, and faith sharing groups, especially during the seasons of Advent and Lent. Check out our Events page for information about upcoming opportunities to strengthen your faith.
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
Your faith journey is a gift of grace. It begins with a call from God. This call can take many forms. It can take the form of a deep spiritual hunger. It might come through a friend or a spouse. It may arise from witnessing God’s love in action.
RCIA is one way to respond to this call. R.C.I.A. is a ritual process by which adults become full members of the Catholic Church. It is a conversion - a turning toward Jesus Christ and a decision to follow Him in His Church.
R.C.I.A. (Adult) ~ RCIA is for you if you are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith - whether you were raised in a different Christian denomination or have very little religious background. It’s for you if you are looking for a deeper encounter with Jesus Christ. And it’s for you if you were raised Catholic and now wish to be confirmed or simply want to return home.
Our class provides a welcoming environment in which individuals can freely explore questions about Jesus Christ, Scripture, and the teachings of the church.
Schedule/Time Commitment: The 2019-20 R.C.I.A. class will meet on Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 beginning October 9. Participants are given weekly reading assignments that take 15-30 minutes to complete. In addition to the class, participants gather periodically after the 9:30am Sunday Mass to “Break Open the Word” by reflecting on the Scripture readings of the week.
