Adult Faith Formation

What is RCIA? RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is a process by which adults are warmly welcomed as they are provided by a spiritual formation according to each person’s needs.  In general, people who are becoming Catholic , whether baptized or unbaptized, have had little or no affiliation with or religious training in the Christian faith; and baptized people who have been active members in other Christian denominations.

How do I join? Anyone who is thinking about becoming a Catholic Christian or who would like more information can contact St. Anthony’s Church (or any Catholic church nearest them). Meeting the pastor or another member of the parish’s pastoral staff ordinarily is the first step in the journey toward becoming Catholic.

When do we meet? RCIA: The Next English Inquiry session will be on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm in the Community Room. For more information please call: Cynthia Reyes @ 486-7301, ext. 120

RICA: FORMACIÓN DE LA FE PARA ADULTOS EN ESPAÑOL — cada segundo martes del mes a las 7:00 pm en el Salón de Comunidad. Para mas información, favor de comuníquese con: Cynthia Reyes @ 486-7301

Thank you to all in the parish who continue to help us with our fundraising and monthly or yearly donations. “Your reward will be great in heaven”. Some parents in our school have lost their jobs but
