Adult Faith Formation, or the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA), is the process by which people become members of the Roman Catholic Church. This adult study offers the opportunity to grow in the life of Christ through experience, reflection and prayer. Guided reading, Catholic video screening, and scripture study help participants to achieve a better understanding of and participation in the full sacramental life of the church. RCIA meets Sunday morning between the 9:30am and Noon Mass from September through May. Please click here or contact Sr. Donna Lareau,OLM or Lola Reilly for more information.
