Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

People who are interested in receiving the Catholic Sacraments of Initiation are invited to participate in the St. John's series of classes to prepare them for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). These classes are for people who have been baptized in another Christian faith who wish to convert to Catholicism; baptized Catholics who may not have received the Sacraments of the Eucharist and/or Confirmation; or fully initiated Catholics who wish to learn more and deepen their understanding of their Catholic faith. Classes start in September and continue throughout the year culminating at the Easter Vigil.

That Man is You is a ministry for men that focuses on spiritual growth and meeting other men in our parish. That Man is You! is transforming men, families, and society as it presents the vision of man fully alive. Combining the teachings of the Church and wisdom of the saints with the best research from modern science in an interactive, multimedia format, That Man is You! puts this vision within the grasp of every man.
 
TMIY! consists of two 13-week "semesters" offered at 6:45pm on Tuesday evenings. The first semester ran September 18 through December 11. The second semester begins Tuesday, January 15, 2019.
