Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
For adults interested in becoming Catholics, or for adult Catholics who have yet to receive all of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Holy Eucharist, Confirmation), the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is offered on a regular basis each year. We will take each learner step by step through the essential teachings of the Church in an informal atmosphere that is open to questions and reflection. This journey of prayer and study will lead you to deeper union with Christ. Please contact Father John for details!
Ongoing Adult Formation Options
Our Catholic education is never over, as the Lord calls us to know Him and love Him, with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength. We are all lifelong learners called to deepen our faith in Christ.
Small Faith-Sharing Groups
St. Mary’s has a number of small faith-sharing groups, who meet at various times of the week. In these groups, parishioners reflect upon God’s Word, seeking to apply it to their everyday lives. Along the way, so many have formed lasting friendships with others who seek the heart of Christ. Call the Parish Center, and ask to be put in touch with Dottie Boyle, our group coordinator.
Father John presents an informal talk on one topic of the Catholic faith each month, with emphasis upon the Scriptural foundations of the Catholic faith. These talks are open to the entire parish and other friends. Refreshments will be available and there will be time for Q&A. Join us for this informal and fun night of strengthening your faith!
