Now is the Right Time: Adults interested in becoming Catholic
Yes, today, not yesterday or tomorrow, but today is a good day to consider becoming a member of the Catholic Church. It’s not too early to pray and think about the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (R.C.I.A.) beginning this Fall.
Are you interested in being baptized, being confirmed, or receiving the Holy Eucharist? Join us in this “Journey of Faith”.
If you or anyone you know is interested in learning more about our Catholic Faith for the purpose of becoming a member of the Church, or possibly a more active member of the Catholic Church, then the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is the journey of Faith and Education which is worth your consideration.
R.C.I.A. is not simply information and academics. Hopefully, our gatherings will be faith enlightening enough for you to make a conscious and personal decision about becoming an active and full member of the Church. Our guest speakers supplement the contemporary presentations of fellow believers of St. Joseph.
Areas of study and reflection include: Sacred Scripture, God as Trinity, the history of the Church including the Reformation, the Sacramental and Prayer life of believers, ethical and moral questions…..In general, what our Church teaches and believes.
As a Christian community, it is our duty and privilege to proclaim the Kingdom of God. A primary feature of the proclamation is to invite others to experience the love and the community we enjoy in the Lord Jesus. Therefore, I ask you to first of all pray for those considering this step. May the Holy Spirit gently move them to respond to his promptings. Secondly, personally invite anyone may know who needs a little human encouragement to join us.
