Parish Life Sacrament information

RCIA Invitation- The Rite of Christian Initiation of adults is the solemn and sacred process by which adults seeking answers are brought into full harmony with our parish community and the wider Catholic Church. Candidates participate in educational, spiritual and social activities. They meet regularly and discuss various aspects of their faith journey and of the Church doctrine, liturgy, and practices. The journey culminates in the Sacred Sacrament of Initiation, Baptism, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation at the Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday. Please contact the parish office for more information. Please sign up now for classes in the fall.
