Our program begins early each fall and continues through Pentecost.
Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm
in the parish conference room
in Assumption House.
Our primary resources are the Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Liguori's "Journey of Faith" program.
From the Liguori website:
"Journey of Faith is a catechetical program designed for use primarily in RCIA classes. It includes a total of 44 lessons contained in individual four-page handouts. Lessons from Inquiry through Mystagogy explore basic Catholic beliefs and practices. Covers topics from a Catholic approach to the bible, the sacraments, morality, prayer, and the liturgical seasons, and much more. Thought-provoking questions help participants relate each topic to their own personal experience."
