RCIA – The Rite of Christian Initiation

RCIA is the process by which men and women enter into the Catholic Community of Faith. The program is for those who: * have never been baptized and wish to become Catholic, * have been baptized in another faith tradition and wish to become Catholic, * have been baptized Catholic but have not received the other Sacraments of Initiation (Confirmation and Eucharist) and would like to receive these sacraments, * are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith.

If you are interested in joining the Catholic Church, completing the Sacraments of Initiation or just finding out about the Catholic Church, please call Bill Phillips at (858)674-4824 or the San Rafael Adult Education Office (858)487-4314, ext. 1224, for information.

Adult Faith Formation

NEW ADVENT/CHRISTMAS BIBLE STUDY | Starting the first week of Advent we will have a 6-week study focusing on the CHRISTMAS STORY: THE INFANCY NARRATIVES OF THE BIBLE. In this series we will look at the stories in Matthew and Luke that portray the conception and birth of Jesus Christ and the events surrounding it. More than nice sentimental children’s stories these narratives teach us the deepest truths of the Gospel. Come join us and bring a Bible and a friend! There is no sign up and no cost (we have a freewill offering).

There are two choices (same class):

Mondays, starting Monday, December 4th at 6:30–8:30 p.m. in Rooms H & I upstairs in the Pastoral Center or

Wednesdays, starting Wednesday, December 6th at 9:30-11:30 a.m. in rooms H & I upstairs in the Pastoral Center. There will be babysitting offered for the Wednesday morning sessions IF NEEDED. We will supply babysitters in the church for the first week to see if there is a need!

Come and deepen your relationship with Jesus!
