RCIA is a journey for anyone (everyone!) interested in the faith of Catholics. Together, we’ll explore what Catholics believe about Jesus, learn about their spirituality, and what it means to live an authentic Catholic life devoted to knowing, loving, and serving God and each other.

Without obligation, all are welcome to gather in community to participate in instructive sessions that enthusiastically study what Catholics believe. This class is also a way for Catholics to receive the sacraments (Confirmation).

Sessions will meet at in the St. Francis Parish Hall on Thursdays during the academic year, from 6:00-7:00pm (dinner provided at 5:30).

Part 1: Jesus and His Church (begins 9/20/18)
Part 2: Spirituality, Prayer, and Worship (begins 01/17/19)
Part 3: Living an Authentic Catholic Life (begins 03/14/19)
