Adult Programs 

-  Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

RCIA is a very special opportunity for adults who wish to explore membership in the Roman Catholic faith or for those Catholics who wish to receive sacraments which were not received at traditional ages. This journey also is an excellent opportunity to participate in a wonderful overview of the catholic faith and is open to all parishioners. We start this journey in late fall and continue through Easter when all will receive the sacraments at the Easter Vigil. So if you are in need of baptism, Eucharist or Confirmation preparation as an adult, we would love to see you!​


- Adult Faith Formation

Becoming Human.  Dismantling Racism.
