Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults  

Are you someone or do you know someone who:                                                                                              Has expressed interest in becoming a Catholic?  Has a child over 7 who has not been Baptized? ?                                                                                                                                                                                                Was Baptized Catholic as a child, but has not celebrated the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist?                Is a Baptized Catholic but would like to return to the Church after a long time away?

St. Therese Parish community offers an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn about our beliefs, and explore our journey of faith to God.  Sessions focus on our Christian roots revealed in the Bible and the teachings and experience of the Church.  For those who choose, we also prepare individuals to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist during the Easter season.  There are separate sessions for children or youth.  You are welcome to participate in this process with your questions, your insights, and your faith story in a warm accepting setting.
