Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is for anyone 7 or older seeking to be baptized and/or enter into the Catholic Church or for adult Catholics seeking completion of the Sacraments of Initiation (e.g., Confirmation or First Communion). Classes meet Sunday mornings and some Friday evenings. Classes begin the Sunday after Labor Day and continue through Pentecost Sunday. Candidates are sometimes accepted after classes begin. Volunteers needed include catechists (training required), sponsors, and hospitality ministers.

Alpha Course

Everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the world, and everyone is welcome.
