FEST 2019


Faith is a lifelong journey, and the RCIA is a parish journey designed to assist individuals who wish to strengthen their relationship with God.

                 RCIA is an acronym for Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults and provides for a variety of spiritual needs. The make-up of a typical RCIA class is as follows:

*Adults who have never been baptized in any church or people who are members of a non-Christian religion.

*Adults who have been baptized in a Protestant Church but no longer are practicing members of that church.

*Adults who have been baptized as Roman Catholics, but who at some point stopped practicing their Catholic faith (Many of these folks would like to return to the Church or to be instructed for the reception of the sacraments, but just don’t know what to do.)

*Adult Catholics who wish to renew their faith commitment and are seeking an experience of community.

Our first meeting is informational and is open to anyone 18 or older, who is interested. The informational meeting takes place:
