R.C.I.A. [Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults]:  A new program begins each September.  Sessions are held Thursday nights at 7 p.m. The sessions are for four groups of people:  people who want to become Catholic; people who have not decided to become Catholic but are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith; the spouse or fiancée of someone attending; for people who are Catholic who want to renew their faith as an adult.  Those who ultimately decide to join the Church will do so at the Easter Vigil.  Contact Deb Purcell at 987-4597 x 204 for details.
