Adult

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

  • This process is for adults who have not been baptized and want to explore learning more about Jesus Christ and the Catholic church; or for adults baptized in another Christian denomination, but who may now be interested in being accepted and confirmed into the Catholic church; or
  • Adults who are baptized Catholics, but have not completed their full initiation into the Catholic church and still need to celebrate the sacraments of 1st Eucharist and Confirmation.
  • Please call Gerry Wolf, Pastoral Associate, at 253-2213, for more details.  This process begins in mid-September.

Centering Prayer

  • On Wednesdays at 8:45 a group meets for 20 – 30 minutes of silent prayer called Centering prayer.  We meet in the Reconciliation Room at St. James.   We offer the opportunity for centering prayer or contemplative prayer: a time of silence, and a time to be in God’s presence in a unique and special way.
