Classes for Adults
The RCIA group meets weekly between September and April. The weekly meetings last 2 hours although there are no meetings during the Christmas season. In addition, there are several special events for the RCIA candidates.
These meetings do two things: teach the candidates about the Catholic Church, and allow sponsors, candidates, and team members alike to share their faith experiences. Each meeting focuses on a specific topic, such as the Scripture, social teaching of the Church, or the meaning of the Eucharist. The process ends with baptisms, confirmations, and first communions in a beautiful ceremony the night before Easter. If you have considered brushing up on your faith or would like to be a sponsor for a candidate or team member, call Judy Preiss at 384-2523 ext 214
