Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults & Adapted for Children and Teens

All Are Welcome

What if....

  • 'I am unbaptized but want to grow spiritually in my life.'
  • 'I have a different faith background but want to learn what Catholics believe and why.'
  • 'I am a baptized Catholic but never made my First Holy Communion and/or Confirmation.'   

.....we would love to assist you in your faith journey through an exciting and deeply enriching process in the Catholic Church called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.).

RCIA is for those who are seeking a better relationship with God, who are looking for more information about Catholic Christianity, or who are seeking to grow in their spiritual or Sacramental life.  The RCIA process welcomes the unbaptized person to the family of Jesus Christ.  Sessions are informal and comfortable opportunities to explore the Catholic faith with presentations, discussions, and fellowship.  Explore the faith without obligation.  We meet most Sunday mornings during the school year from 9:00-10:30 in Bishop Quinn Hall behind the school.  During the summer we take a few weeks off then we offer a summer series to continue faith formation.  Watch the bulletin for the Symbolon series which will start at the end of June, on Sundays after the 8 am Mass in the dining room behind the church.

Adult Confirmation 

Adults in need of Confirmation only must call to register for the Fall Confirmation classes.  They will start in early September.  

Adults in need of First Communion and Confirmation

Adults in need of First Communion and Confirmation will have a longer formation period of at least 6 months as suggested by the Sacramento Diocese.  Many adults find that they need longer.  We always have formation going on throughout the year with a couple breaks.  You must meet and register with Jennifer Hackney, RCIA Coordinator, to have a formation plan for your sacraments.  Check the bulletin and our parish website for faith formation opportunities.
