Learning the Basis and Basics of Catholicism…
I think I’m interested in the Catholic faith… How do I find out more about Catholics and their faith??
Throughout all time, our Lord has planted the seeds of faith in His people. Our life experience may have brought us to a point where we sense a desire to learn more about His love for us… And we find our way to the Catholic faith.
The Catholic Church has established a series of classes to introduce those inquiring about the Catholic faith to the basis and basics of the Faith. This series of classes is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, or RCIA.
We all share this journey of faith. Together we are the Body of Christ. The RCIA process is geared to those who are adults and who have recognized that there is some aspect of the Catholic faith that has drawn them to learn more. RCIA is oriented to those who have a frame of reference that appreciates concepts discussed at an adult level.
What should I expect in Good Shepherd’s RCIA program? You should expect some teaching, some discussion, some prayer, and an opportunity to sense our Lord’s calling in a friendly and welcoming environment that respects your life decisions. Through RCIA, hopefully you will experience a personal discovery of the Church’s teachings and spirituality.
RCIA classes are on Tuesdays at 7:00 PM from August thru April in our meeting room on the lower level of the Office Building. And of course, Catholics who would like to refresh their understanding of their faith are always welcome too. Call Dave Best at 256-882-1945, Ext.104 if you would like to learn more.
