Adults inquiring into the Roman Catholic faith are invited to attend classes taught by Deacon Ed Pruet on Sundays from 9:30-10:30 am. Becoming Catholic is one of the most profound and joyous experiences of life and requires a sprit of discernment.
The process begins with an appointment with Father Gerald Holloway to discuss the individual faith journey.
Adults are brought into full communion with the Roman Catholic Church through reception of three sacraments of Christian initiation which are Baptism, Communion, and Confirmation. Christian baptism of other faiths is recognized by the Catholic Church in this preparation. Baptized adults must also receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation in confession.
