ADULT FAITH FORMATION PROGRAMS
RCIA – (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) This is for anyone who is interested in learning more about becoming a Catholic and for someone who has been baptized Catholic, but never received First Communion and Confirmation. Please contact Fr. Jeremy Gries at (812) 944-8283 ext 1.
The process consists of weekly meetings during which we share the gospel and introduce Catholic teachings.
These meetings begin in the fall and culminate at the Easter Vigil when participants receive the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist. The process also includes on-going formation after Easter.
Two Catholic Book Clubs: One is held on the 2 nd Wednesday of the month from 1-2pm in the DAC. You may contact Karen at the parish office if you would like to join this book club. (812) 944-8283 x0.
A second book club is being held on the first Monday of the month from 6:45-8:00pm. To join this book club, please contact Theresa in the parish office. (812) 944-8283 x5
YOUTH FAITH FORMATION PROGRAMS
RCIA adapted for Children – (Rite of Christian Initiation adapted for Children) Normally the children of Catholic parents are baptized as infants, but this is not always the case. The RCIA adapted for Children process is for children, ages 7 and up, who have not received Baptism or First Communion to receive extra Sacramental Preparation in anticipation for receiving these sacraments.
Catholic Faith Formation Classes – The ministry of Religious Education classes for students who attend public school is held one Saturday per month (generally the 2nd) for grades K-8. We begin at 9:00am in the Day Activity Center and end at 12:00pm in the Day Activity Center. There is instruction time, craft time, snack time and prayer time.
