FAMILY FAITH FORMATION

Once-a-month after Mass the whole family is invited to engage their Catholic Faith at each member’s own level, so preschoolers participate in activities for their level, while older siblings participate in their own group with grade level activities. Parents join with other adults to learn about and discuss Catholic topics.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process whereby adults enter the Catholic Church. RCIA was developed by the Catholic church for those who are not previously baptized and adapted for those baptized in another faith tradition. We also include those adult Catholics seeking to complete their sacraments with Confirmation.

Are you hearing a quiet, still voice within, urging you to learn more about the Catholic faith? Do you find yourself coming to St. Elizabeth’s for Mass and wanting to be more involved in the community? Do you long for a deeper relationship with God? If your answer to any of the questions above is “yes” then God may be calling you to explore the Catholic Faith more deeply.

 

Ready to Take the First Steps?

 

Begin by attending Mass at St. Elizabeth. Next, please contact the RCIA Coordinator: Christopher Metzger at Metzger.Christopher@gmail.com or 804-3294599.
