Adult Faith Formation

As adults we typically think of education as something we offer to our children.  We spend time and effort ensuring that they are educated and encouraging them to be life long learners.  In the business and noise of our life, we often forget that we must do the same with Our Faith and ourselves.  We bring the Faith to our children through day school and PSR, but what do we do to ensure that our own faith and spirituality continues to grow?  As Catholics we are blessed with beautifully rich tradition.  It is through these traditions that we are drawn closer to Our Heavenly Father.  It is vital that we do not become complacent in our faith, but, instead, spend time in community sharing and learning about Our Faith.

St. Joseph's parish offers a wide variety of programs for Adult Faith Formation.  Check the Events Page to see a list of upcoming groups and classes that may be of interest.

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process in which a person who is not baptized or baptized in another faith denomination journeys with others like them and other Catholics to be fully initiated in the Catholic faith. It is a process of formation with initial weeks of inquiry followed by weekly “breaking open of the Word” and catechesis. There are four steps in this formation process which culminates at the Easter Vigil with the celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation, Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. The RCIA team depends on the parish community to invite and support the men and women to be initiated into the Catholic Church. In addition to their witness, parishioners are invited to serve by being a prayer partner, catechist, or sponsor or by assisting with hospitality. Weekly sessions are held on Sunday mornings beginning in September and ending at Pentecost. Call Sr. Rosemary Buttice, ASCJ at (636)-464-9027 x234 for more information.
