ADULT FAITH FORMATION: The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (R.C.I.A.) is a program for those who wish to become a baptized Roman Catholic, for those who were baptized in other Christian communities and wish to be received into the Catholic Church, or for those baptized Roman Catholics who would like to complete their Sacraments of initiation.
Also, different opportunities take place during the year to help adult Catholics learn more about their Catholic faith. See the bulletin for details.
New parishioners should register by contacting the parish office. Registration is necessary, but not enough, to be considered a practicing Catholic; regular Sunday worship is required. Certificates of Eligibility (to serve as a Godparent or Sponsor) certify a practicing Catholic, and so can only be given to parishioners who regularly attend Mass. Please let the parish office know of any change in contact information.
