RCIA Begins September 2!
The fall sessions of St Mary’s Rite Of Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and Continuing Adult Formation in our Catholic faith will begin Wednesday, Sept. 2, at 6:45 p.m. in St. Mary’s Holy Family Center.
These sessions will cover the basic beliefs of our Catholic faith in an open and informative way with a focus on tackling the big issues of faith that we face in our society today. Knowing why we believe is as important as knowing what we believe as Catholics in an ever more hostile world. Knowing God is the first step in loving and serving Him. Knowledge of Him forms the foundation for a strong faith which is needed as we seek to evangelize those around us including our children and grandchildren.
RCIA is open to anyone wanting to learn more about the beauty of what we believe and why we believe it as Catholics. Our weekly sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings in the Holy Family Center and will last approximately two hours. Snacks and refreshments will be served.
