Adult and Family

Christian Formation Committee

Parish members interested in promoting, enhancing, and strengthening the Christian Formation program.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

RCIA is a process through which non-baptized men and women enter the Catholic Church.  It is also for those baptized in a different faith tradition who wish to become Catholic, or baptized Catholic but never confirmed.  It includes several stages marked by study, prayer, and rites at Mass.  They undergo a process of conversion as they study the Gospel, profess faith in Jesus and the Catholic Church, and receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist at the Easter Vigil.  Participants are instructed in the Catholic faith by catechists willing to share their Catholic faith.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC)

School age children who are not baptized or are out of sequence with their classmates are given the opportunity to enter a sacramental preparation program with their parents.  Sessions cover the theological elements of the sacraments and will foster a great understanding of our call to discipleship.

Parish Mission

The parish mission is an annual Lenten opportunity for parish members to refresh and renew their Catholic faith.  Guest speakers lead the parish in lectures and reflections to promote spiritual growth.

Stations of the Cross

During Lent we offer Stations of the Cross on Wednesday or Thursday evening, and Friday afternoon with our school children.

Rosary

Prayed on Sunday mornings in church about 8:30am and before the daily mass about 7:40am.  Anyone attending mass is encouraged to join the group.

Prayer Chain

Available to anyone who has a special intention for which they would like prayers.  Prayer requests are confidential and new prayer members are always welcome.
