Religious Education Schedule 2012-2013

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) – This is a series of classes for those who are interested in either becoming Catholic or those who are curious about the teachings of the Catholic Church.  Catholics who have not had religious instruction in a long time would also benefit from these classes.  The classes meet every Wednesday night at 7:00pm beginning September 5, 2012 (exclusive of Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks) until Easter in the rectory.

The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) is an association established in 1562 in Rome for the purpose of providing religious education. In its modern usage, CCD is the religious teaching program of the Catholic Church for school age children to learn the basic doctrines of their faith, especially as they prepare for First Holy Communion and Confirmation.  Classes meet Sunday morning from 9:20am – 10:20am beginning September 23, 2012 in the rectory. CCD teachers needed!  Please call Phillip Bellini at the parish office.

Adult Education – Thursday evening at 7:00 beginning September 19, 2012 with a course on Spirituality.  We will be discussing the different types of spirituality in the Church, i.e., Benedictine, Carmelite, Jesuit, Holy Cross. Dominican, Franciscan etc…10 classes.  Then we will break for a couple of week and begin our final Scripture class on the Acts of the Apostles at the beginning of Advent and continuing through May.
