RCIA Classes To Begin

RCIA classes began October 24 at St. Mary’s Parish Center. We share class instructions with Pierce and Plainview. Father Lim and Deacon Doug will assist with instructions. If you are interested please call St. Jane’s Parish Office or St. Mary’s School. Classes will be on Tuesday nights from the end of October until Holy Week just before Easter Sunday. Those who join the church do so on Holy Saturday night on March 31, 2018. Class times begin at 7:00 p.m. and run until around 8:30 p.m. Those interested will also need a sponsor who will walk with them through the classes and their entrance into the Church. We look forward to learning together about the riches of our Catholic Faith! Those who can join RCIA are those adults who are from another faith and are interested in learning about joining the Catholic Faith or those adults who were baptized Catholic but have not received First Holy Communion and /or Confirmation.  Click Here To See The Schedule
