Want to Learn More about Catholicism?
Ever wonder why Catholics believe what they do? Why do Catholics have so many rituals? Why do they pray to Mary and the saints? Are Catholics saved? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a wonderful process of study, exploration, faith sharing, and faith formation. This process is for adults seeking baptism or who have been baptized in another faith and desire to know and understand the Catholic faith. This process is open to anyone one who is inquiring about the faith or is discerning whether to become Catholic. Sessions will take place Wednesday evenings, 7-8:30 pm, in the Pastoral Center, starting on October 29 through the beginning of April. If you are interested in participating in the RCIA please schedule an informational meeting with Fr. Weiss before October 22 by emailing or calling Patti Day: 651-227-7669 x 302.
