Hello All,

Welcome to Holy Spirit Parish! I’m genuinely looking forward to meeting you and sharing in your faith journey this year in R.C.I.A..

R.C.I.A. stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. This experience is intended to answer your questions about what Catholics do, why we do it, and help you discern your decision to enter fully and completely into life as a Catholic.

Attached is the Calendar for this year’s R.C.I.A. events, and a few good websites for you to browse as much as it interests you.

In order to be fully present and to avoid distracting yourself or others, please make plans for your children to be cared for outside of Mercy Hall. I’m happy to help you make these arrangements if you need me.

Our first class is September 2, 2015. The room where the meetings be held will be in Conference Room 2, in the church office building, Mercy Hall, directly across the parking lot from the church.

Until then, your first step is to choose which Mass you will participate in every weekend, and begin doing so. Please bring copies of your Baptism Certificate and First Communion Certificate, if you have one, to our first meeting.

Feel free to call or text me if you have any questions!
