Whatever your age, there’s always more to learn about the Catholic faith. Whether you’re just getting started or you’re looking to grow deeper and learn more, we have many opportunities to get involved.
Do you experience something missing in your faith life and seek a spiritual home to call your own? Were you Baptized in another Christian tradition and want to learn more about becoming Catholic? Were you Baptized as a Catholic but never celebrated the sacraments of Confirmation or Eucharist and now want to be fully initiated? Or perhaps you are married to a Catholic (or plan to marry one) and just want to learn more about your (future) spouse’s beliefs and practices.
Saint Stephen Parish offers the opportunity to explore and respond to these questions and life circumstances. The process described in The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) enables one to ask questions and discern how God might be calling to you in your faith journey. Our parish will be offering RCIA sessions on Thursday evenings from 7pm to 8pm at our parish office. You will be welcomed into full communion with the church at the Easter Vigil (Saturday service the night before Easter). If you are unsure whether or not this may be the year for you, join us for the first few sessions.
Saint Stephen parish offers a variety of adult faith formation opportunities.
