Our parish offers a variety of adult education opportunities
throughout the year for adults who wish to deepen their faith and
grow in their spiritual life.
Adult Education Programs
These programs offer opportunities for faith enrichment to the
adults of our parish as well as adults from neighboring parishes.
Growing in Faith Together (GIFT) is an adult educational opportunity
in which four parishes of the Diocese work together to provide
faith formation opportunities for the Diocese at large. Speakers
address topics of interest to our adult faith community. Information
on how to register for upcoming series can be found by checking the
links to the left.
Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)
RCIA is a process designed to assist people who wish to become
members of the Catholic Church or wish to complete the Sacraments of
Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. The entire process
takes approximately one year. There are five phases in the RCIA
Process: Inquiry, Catechumenate, Purification, Sacraments of
Initiation at Easter Vigil, and Mystagogy. See links to left for an expanded
explanation of the RCIA Process.
To register for RCIA, complete the RCIA Registration Form linked to
