Adult Faith Formation Opportunities
R.C.I.A (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
Are you a non-Catholic, married to a Catholic, or planning on marrying someone who is Catholic? Have you ever thought of becoming Catholic? Would you consider learning more about our faith and our church (with no pressure to join)? Perhaps you could join a group of others who have the same thoughts. We call it The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). If you would like more information, contact the parish office at (949) 249-4091 or firstname.lastname@example.org .CALLING ALL ADULTS WHO HAVE NOT BEEN CONFIRMED!….
ADULT CONFIRMATION: An Invitation for Adults Who have not been Confirmed.
For most of us, the Sacrament of Confirmation was celebrated when we were either in junior high or in high school. For those adults in the RCIA, their Confirmation is celebrated when they are Baptized at the Easter Vigil. For some, especially in Latin countries, the custom was to Confirm at Baptism as infants. At any rate, for a variety of reasons, many adult Catholics have not been confirmed. This invitation is for you.
If you are 19 years of age, and have made your First Communion, but have not been Confirmed, I invite you to join me and others in a preparation program this spring so that you will be Confirmed on Pentecost Sunday, June 9th at 11am Mass, here at St. Timothy Church.
HOW DO I SIGN UP? Either come to the parish office and pick up a registration form, or download the registration form, fill it out, and return by March 18th.
WHEN DO CLASSES START? We will begin on Monday, March 18th with an Information evening at 7pm in the Upper Room; the classes will start Monday, April 22nd and continue on a weekly basis through June 3rd .
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED? You will need to get a new copy of your baptism certificate; you will need to get a Confirmed Catholic to be your sponsor and to accompany you to class; and you will need an open heart and mind to receive the power of the Holy Spirit.
I am looking forward to meeting you, teaching you, and sharing this journey with you for the final step toward your final step of Initiation into our Catholic faith. Any questions? Please call me at 949 973 9021 or email me at email@example.com.
