Mission: The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process used by the Catholic Church to present the beliefs of this faith to those adults who have made a conscious decision to explore coming into full communion with the Church.

Our RCIA Team, in conjunction with the pastoral staff, is committed to the presentation of the doctrine of our faith, in a welcoming and understandable manner, to members of our community who have made the decision to seek this step in their personal faith journey, and join with us as we strive to live the mission of Jesus Christ through prayer, service, outreach, fellowship and a true sense of family, as we minister to all members of our parish and community, especially to those in need.

Volunteer opportunities: Sponsors to accompany Candidates and Catechumens on their journeys. Meetings are held weekly from September through Easter on either Sunday mornings or Monday evenings.

Time commitment of volunteers: Sponsors: Two hours per week
