Faith is a lifelong journey, and we encourage our parishioners to continue asking questions and learning about our faith as adults. We strive to continuously offer new and varied ways to explore our Catholic faith and grow closer to Christ.

Literature as Prophecy is a fascinating class taught by Dr. Robert Alexander.

FORMED.org is a website that offers hundreds of free faith formation resources for Catholics of all ages, including multi-part programs, bible studies, videos, movies, books, and audio talks on a large variety of topics. FORMED has been described as the Catholic version of Netflix. Parishioners can register for and stream material from FORMED at no cost to them as long as the parish continues to subscribe.
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a spiritual journey designed for adults who freely seek the living God and desire to enter the Catholic Church. RCIA participants will be strengthened spiritually during their preparation and at the proper time will receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist). Baptized Catholics who have not completed the Sacraments of Initiation may also participate in RCIA as appropriate to their needs.
We recognize that not everyone's faith journey looks the same. So, whatever the situation, we are here to assist each family on their unique journey. If you have questions or concerns about the process, just let us know.
