Deepen your faith through theology, prayer, and spirituality

Adult Faith Formation

We believe the best way to be formed in the faith is to fully participate in parish life, that includes ongoing human, spiritual, intellectual, and apostolic formation. The following offerings are centered on scripture and Tradition in order to better understand and live out the teachings of Jesus Christ and His Church.

Embark on your faith journey with Behold, our online resource and email newsletter, that lets you learn about the Catholic faith, anytime, anywhere.

RCIA

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the process by which adults can come into the Church. Whether you’re merely inquiring about the Catholic Church, have already decided to become Catholic, come from another Christian tradition, or have been Baptized Catholic but never received religious education, you are welcome to attend RCIA.

RCIA begins meeting in the fall and culminates at the Easter Vigil as participants receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist.

When does RCIA meet?

Tuesday Nights
7:00 – 9:00 pm
