Adult Faith Formation

“The Mass” series by Bishop Robert Barron

Walk through the Liturgy with Bishop Barron and be transformed through insights on this most privileged and intimate encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ. See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church, and most importantly, how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist. The Mass will help you understand how to fully, consciously and actively participate in the source and summit of the Christian life.  For six-weeks join us from 2:00 - 3:00 pm at St. John Evangelist (school wing). If you cannot attend one week - no problem - just come the weeks you can.

  • Week 1 - September 10 - A Privileged Encounter
  • Week 2 - September 17 - Called Out of the World
  • Week 3 - September 24 - God Speaks Our Story
  • Week 4 - October 1- Responding to God
  • Week 5 - October 8 - Preparing For Sacrifice
  • Week 6 - October 15 - The Real Presence Creates Communion.

RCIA

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

RCIA instruction takes place each year, in small group or individual sessions, with initiation into the Catholic Faith taking place during the Easter Vigil Mass.

Who is RCIA for?

  • The unbaptized: The primary focus of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is on those who are not already Christian and have not been catechized.
  • Baptized but uncatechized: Those who have been baptized either as Catholics or as members of another Christian community, such as Baptist, Methodist, or Lutheran. These individuals may not have received complete religious formation or instruction, and they may or may not have celebrated Confirmation or Eucharist.
  • Those seeking full Catholic Communion: These are baptized, practicing Christians from other denominations, who seek entry into the Catholic Church.

For more information, read our Frequenty Asked Questions.

RCIA includes the celebration of the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Eucharist as well as all the rites of the catechumenate. The initiation of adults is a gradual process that takes place within the community of the faithful.  Together with the catechumens, the faithful reflect upon the value of the paschal mystery, renew their own conversion, and by their example lead the catechumens to obey the Holy Spirit more generously.
