Adult Faith Formation

Adult Ongoing Formation

We provide ongoing faith formation programs for adults. Bible Study and faith sharing happens in an informal and relaxed setting.

  • Bible Study meets each Monday from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm. This is an ongoing class and participants can start at any time. No pre-registration is needed.
  • Our Emmaus Faith Sharing meets most Thursdays from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm. This is an ongoing ministry and no pre-registration is needed. 

 

Adult Confirmation

For those adults who would like to complete their Initiation, we conduct a 10-week preparation program. This program is for adults who:

  • Have been baptized and have received First Communion but who have not celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation
  • Have been validly baptized in another Christian denomination and who now want to be received in the Catholic Church
This group meets on Sunday mornings from August to January. It is also open to adults who wish to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the Catholic Church.

 

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

RCIA is a process designed for 2 different groups of people:

  • Adults who are not baptized and would like to become members of the Catholic Church
  • Adults who were batized as children into the Catholic faith but have not completed their initiation in the Church because they have not celebrated their First Holy Communion/Sacrament of Confirmation
RCIA meets on Sunday mornings.
