Faith Formation



Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is designed for persons age 16 and older who seek to enter the way of faith and conversion. It includes the catechetical formation and ritual steps to prepare for the celebration of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. This process is adapted for baptized Christians seeking to be received into the full communion of the Catholic Church, as well as baptized Catholics seeking Confirmation and/or Eucharist. The entire parish supports Inquirers, Catechumens, and Candidates through prayer, liturgical celebration, fellowship, and serving as sponsors.

Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP)

CHRP is a spiritual renewal weekend designed to help individuals grow in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ and with others in their faith community. As Catholics, we are called to witness to one another the amazing things God as done for us. The CRHP process allows us to do just that—take a break from our busy lives, share our faith with others, and get to know God through his works.  It is an excellent opportunity for Catholics to renew their understanding of the basic beliefs and traditions of their faith.  Just as all of our other commitments need renewal, so does our commitment to Christ if we're to be faithful followers.  CLICK HERE to register for next CRHP Weekend.
