CONSIDERING BECOMING A CATHOLIC OR SIMPLY WANTING TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE CATHOLIC FAITH
Are you thinking about joining the Catholic Church?
Do you have a friend or relative who is searching for a faith home?
Are you a Catholic who needs to complete initiation through Confirmation and/or First Eucharist?
Do you have a child or children who were never baptized?
Do you have a child who was baptized in another faith tradition, but wants to live as a Catholic Christian?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (and adapted for children) is the way that the Catholic Church welcomes people into the Church. RCIA is much more than a program; it is a process in which conversion of the heart brings one to Jesus Christ through learning, discussion, prayer, and community. Inquiry will start in September. Participants are invited to grow more deeply in their faith and discern if joining the Catholic Church or completing one's initiation into the Church is what they desire.
The RCIA is for:
Unbaptized adults and children over the age of seven who are considering entrance into the Catholic Church through Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist
Adults and children over the age of seven who were baptized in another tradition and are considering becoming a Catholic
Adults who were baptized Catholic but did not complete their initiation through Confirmation and/or First Eucharist
VOLUNTEERS ON THE JOURNEY
Catholics who would like to learn more about and share their faith and enrich their spiritual lives may serve the participants in the RCIA process as sponsors and/or godparents, hospitality ministers, prayer companions, and catechists.
If you are interested in trying out the RCIA, participating, or volunteering, please contact Lynn Schelitzche, Director of Faith Formation, firstname.lastname@example.org, or 952-405-7230.
Do you wish to have a closer relationship with God?
Do you seek the sense of joy, peace, and hope that you see in some Christians?
Do you want to live your faith in your daily life?
Do you desire to meet others with whom you can share your faith journey?
Do you want to share the Good News of God's love with others around you?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you are invited to seek a deeper relationship with God within the framework of a supportive Catholic Christian Community.
Cursillo is for adults of all ages and phases of their faith journey. Participants will experience the fullness of Christian faith offered by the Catholic Church.
The Cursillo Movement provides a method and the support you need to grow in your faith, enrich your relationship with God, and live the life God intended for you.
Begins with a Weekend
A three-day weekend will help you more richly experience your faith and encourage a spiritual team that is fillled with joy, hope and enthusiasm.
Weekends are held at different parishes throughout the archdiocese. From Thursday evening through Sunday evening, a team of Catholic lay people and spiritual advisors will talk and lead discussions emphasizing:
- The need for a prayerful relationship with God
- The meaning of grace and the sacraments
- Ways of living in a more intimate union with God and his people
Builds on a firm Foundation
- Focused prayer life
- Increased knowledge of God
- Faith shared in friendship
Sustains you on the Journey
Group Reunions: Informal gatherings of three to six people who meet weekly to share their faith and support each other in their spiritual journeys
Ultreya: a gathering of Group Reunions who share life, pray together, socialize and experience a sense of deep friendshiop and belonging with others seeking Christ
