      • Are you interested in learning more about the Catholic faith? Are you unbaptized and have a need for God in your life? Are you baptized, but have never received formal religious education? If you answered even one of the questions above with a ‘yes’, then the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the place for you. Every year adults are welcomed into the Catholic Church through RCIA. This is a learning experience that will give new meaning and direction to life. Jesus Christ, who is Lord and Savior, is the one who leads people to fulfillment and salvation. The class will study all aspects of the Catholic faith, including the Sacraments and how life is to be lived as a faithful Christian. RCIA begins on Sunday, August 17, 2014, at 9:15 a.m. in the school. For more information, contact Carrie Schutter at 838-3808.
