YOU THINKING ABOUT BECOMING CATHOLIC?
sessions for adults who are interested in exploring Catholic beliefs and
practices and want to consider participating in the RCIA (Rite of Christian
Initiation of Adults) will start on Sunday, Sept 7th, at 10:45 AM in
the Family Life Center.
The RCIA is a
process of prayer, reflection and study spread over several months during
which the inquirer participates in Catholic life and worship. The focus of
the RCIA process is Christian conversion - a change of heart in which the
individual turns toward God and away from whatever is in the way of living a
full Christian life.
