If you desire to be more fully and actively engaged on Sunday, this informative time is for you. Regardless of your age or where you feel you are on the journey of faith, you are invited to explore Living the Eucharist.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
Prior to beginning the RCIA process, an individual comes to some knowledge of Jesus Christ, considers his or her relationship with Jesus Christ and is usually attracted in some way to the Catholic Church. This period is known as the Period of Evangelization and Precatechumenate. For some, this process involves a long period of searching; for others, a shorter time. Often, contact with people of faith and a personal faith experience lead people to inquire about the Catholic Church. After a conversation with a priest, or RCIA director, the person, known as an “inquirer,” may seek acceptance into the Order of Catechumens, through the Rite of Acceptance. During this Rite, the inquirer stands amidst the parish community and states that he or she wants to become a baptized member of the Catholic Church. The parish assembly affirms this desire and the inquirer becomes a “catechumen.”
There are sessions every Thursday evening from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. from September until May or June, depending on when the Feast of Pentecost is celebrated.
