RCIA  - (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) Meets September thru Easter on Thursdays 7:00pm–8:30pm. Starting each Fall, there are regular Thursday evening sessions for those who would like to know more about the Catholic Church and its teachings. The sessions are free and imply no commitment on your part to join the Catholic Church. These sessions are opportunities for you, and others that you may wish to invite, to ask any questions you may have about Jesus Christ and the Church. These gatherings are open to people who are not baptized, as well as those who are baptized Christians from Protestant backgrounds, or baptized Catholics who have not received their First Communion and/or Confirmation.
