The Roman Catholic Church, founded by Jesus Christ 2000 years ago, has a long and storied history. As the Body and Bride of Christ on earth, the Church has been the instrument by which our Lord communicates His love, mercy, and graces. Composed of more than a billion people of virtually every nationality, ethnic and racial group on earth, the Church continues to respond to Christ's command to go forth and “baptize all nations in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
RCIA (an acronym for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) at St. Thomas More offers a casual and conversational environment where people who are exploring the Catholic faith get to know more about the basic message of Christ and the mission of His Church. We welcome all who are interested in joining us. This is an accessible and welcoming way to take a look at the bigger picture about God, Jesus, the Bible, the Catholic faith. Our meetings begin in October. We meet on Wednesday evenings from 7p -8:30pm in St. Dominic's Room at the Newman Center. RCIA is for all those interested in the Catholic faith and for those who have been baptized Catholic but have not received the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist. There is no pressure at all to become Catholic. We will help you answer questions, and talk with you .
Do you believe God is calling you to be a part of this wonderfully divine and human community of faith? Do you have a thirst for the Truth that makes all people free? Are you are willing to embrace both saints and sinners in a bond of love? Would you like to experience the fullness of the sacramental graces? Please contact Director of Faith Formation Corinne Lopez at 541 343-7021 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the RCIA program and how you can begin your journey to become a member of the Catholic faith. RCIA gatherings begin soon!
