Discerning whether or not to receive these sacraments, and thus enter into full communion with the Catholic Church, requires time for prayer, reflection, study and conversation. Here at Saint Joseph, the RCIA program is designed to assist you in this process of discernment. You are invited to meet once a week with parishioners, others who are discerning, and those who desire to complete their initiation into the Catholic Church. These sessions give you the time to ask all of your questions.
While we don't promise any simple, easy answers, we do promise an environment where your questions and your story will be heard with the respect and understanding they deserve. These sessions will also be a time for us to reflect on the movement of God in our lives, to share our thoughts and felings, to study the Catholic faith, and to pray, so that we might be mroe attentive to the presence of God in our lives.
