Marriage Prep Class
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process for welcoming newcomers into the Roman Catholic Church. The main purpose of the rite is to assist prospective Catholics in their journey to become active members of the church community. The rite also is intended for those who were baptized in the Catholic church but not evangelized or completely initiated and wish to be in full communion with the church, and those who were baptized in another faith and wish to join the Catholic church.
The program format is intended to encourage discussion and questions and is held in an informal manner. The program begins in September each year and climaxes on Holy Saturday at the Easter Vigil celebration when the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist are received.
The meeting will take place in the East Foyer of the Church.
Those interested in this program should contact the parish office at 769-1755.
