Evangelization for Adults
The RCIA, which stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process through which non-baptized men and women enter the Catholic Church. It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass, after which the candidates are brought into full communion with the church through the Sacraments.
RCIA is open to any adults who are interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith.

Families of Nazareth
Families of Nazareth is always open to new members who desire to cultivate and expand their interior life and for those who want a deeper conversion of the heart. Inspired by the Gospel, we try to imitate Jesus, who lived thirty years of His earthly life being educated by His Mother and St. Joseph as part of the Holy Family in Nazareth. Our Families of Nazareth formation groups meet on Wednesdays from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. We learn to listen to the voice of God as He speaks to us in many ways through Scripture, encyclicals, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, early Church fathers, silence, prayer and spiritual readings. Retreats are also held several times throughout the year.
