The Adult Formation department at St. Joseph coordinates a variety of events and activities throughout the year to foster the spirituality, faith and education of adult parishioners.
Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)
RCIA is for those who wish to be Baptized Catholic, receive the Eucharist, and/or be Confirmed. The process of conversion into the life of Christ and the Catholic Church takes place through a period of instruction and prayer. Preparation for RCIA begins in September. Please call the Parish Office regarding participation in this process.
Classes now forming for the 2019-20 RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) Season. If you are interested in joining RCIA, please contact Mrs. Maggie Viertlbeck, Pastoral Associate for Adult Formation, at (419) 893-4848, or [email protected]
Listed below are some of the Adult Formation programs:
* Lenten and Advent Bible Studies
* Study groups on various books
* Real Life Catholics
* Pray and Paint Ministry
In addition to the regular programs, we also encourage you to get involved in parish groups, committees, and organizations to create deeper relationships, stronger faith and to continue the vibrant community life that characterizes our growing parish. Each group meets at different times, dates, and frequencies throughout the year. There is something for everyone!
