Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA)

RCIA

The Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is a process whereby adults can learn more about their faith and the Catholic Church. Persons can come with their questions and concerns and be welcome by others who also are on a journey of faith. Whether one is seeking baptism, profession of faith into the Catholic Community, full communion with the Catholic Church, or are returning after a long absence this is the place for you.

Sessions for RCIA begin periodically during the year. For more information, please contact the parish office.

Confirmation

Confirmation

Confirmation is the sacrament in which Christ sends the Holy Spirit to help us become mature adult Christians, thus completing the process of Christian initiation begun at Baptism. Adults wishing to be confirmed are invited to participate in our RCIA process. The High School Confirmation program is for all young people who are juniors in high school or older who wish to deepen their commitment to Christ as adults. It must be the young adult's own decision to be a part of the program. This program is offered every other year. For more information, please call the parish office

Marriage

Marriage

The sacrament of matrimony is one that requires a great deal of time and planning. As a result, it is recommended that you begin the marriage process six months in advance of your proposed wedding date. To help you, please use the marriage preparation checklist.

To begin the marriage process, please contact the parish office.

 

 

Below are additional resources for you to review as you prepare for your wedding.

Note: You will need Adobe Reader to access the checklist.

Annointing of the Sick

Whenever one is seriously ill or entering the hospital, please contact the parish office so we can include them in our prayers, and arrange for the Sacrament when appropriate. In addition, a communal celebration of the Sacrament of the Sick occurs on the 2nd Sunday of every month. For more information, please contact the parish office.

Religious Vocation

Please contact Father Yanez or Deacon Ted at the parish office for information concerning Holy Orders or any vocation related discernments.
