Adult Formation Updates

It's Prime Time for Promoting Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

RCIA helps adults and young adults (age 18 and older) learn about the Catholic Faith and prepare them for the initiation sacraments that are typically celebrated at the Easter Vigil Mass which will be on April 3 next spring (2021). Candidates and their sponsors meet together on most Tuesday evenings from the fall through Easter, plus two sessions after Easter. Our normal meeting times are on Tuesdays, 7:00-8:45 PM in the Dining Room. We will begin on Sept. 22, 2020, but new people are still welcome to be added in weeks ahead. Last year we had 14 candidates.
 
Alternate times are possible for those who cannot meet on Tuesday evenings. Because of COVID 19, we will plan to meet just twice a month in person and then have one or two of our monthly sessions by Zoom. The room we use is sanitized, with people seated at least 6 feet apart, and all will wear masks. Sessions just by Zoom are also possible for those needing that option.
 
We are still in need of more Parish Sponsors to participate in RCIA as a support to those who are preparing for initiation sacraments. Confirmed, practicing Catholics are eligible.
If you have questions or interest in joining RCIA, please contact Mike Vievering ASAP
at (952) 469-6480 or mvievering@allsaintschurch.com.  For more info, click HERE
