To those who wish to become Catholic and learn more about Catholicism, the RCIA classes will run from January 4th throught March 28th. This schedule includes a break during the weeks of February 1st and March 7th. The guide for the RCIA program is the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults, which includes the Catechism with a Study Guide along with the Catholic Bible. These materials will be handed out during the first class.
The classes are broken down into four parts, with each part taking you into a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith.
- Creed Your Faith professed
- The Sacraments Your Faith Celebrated
- Christian Morality Your Faith Lived
- Our Father Your Faith Prayed
The Rite of Election will be celebrated in De Pere at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish on the First Sunday in Lent, February 26, at 2:00 pm with Bishop David Ricken.
We are delighted to sponsor RCIA classes and look forward to learning more about our faith journey. Your questions and concerns are important to us, so please bring them to our attention.
