Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

The RCIA process is meant to assist adults (18 and above) to consider, discern and prepare for the Sacrament of Baptism and/or Confirmation. Please call Karen at the above numbers.



The IICG is a process-based initiative (rather than program based), approved by our Bishop, as a means of guiding families along their faith journeys. The IICG process encompasses and includes the whole family and strives to awaken the desire to grow and mature in faith.

This initiative serves as a basis for the preparation of the Sacraments of Initiation for all (children, teens, as well as adults)

IICG gatherings follow a specific format: we gather all together to begin to explore a topic (always based on Scripture). Following this initial exploration, the participants subdivide by age group. This allows for each age group from the very young to adults (including those in their senior years) an opportunity to delve deeper into the topic, in an age-appropriate manner using age-appropriate techniques.

Following this, we gather all together once again in order to share our experiences.

This whole process then opens up numerous opportunities to continue the dialogue at home.

Many blessings on your family as you journey in faith together!
