Notes from Father Charles Townsend
An RCIA invitation from Fr. Gayhart
On Monday, September 12, RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) will begin here at St. Peter's. RCIA will meet every Monday (Sept 12 – April 3) from 7-8:30 pm in the downstairs meeting room. I want to take this opportunity to invite anyone who is interested in learning about the Catholic faith to join us each week. Or maybe you know someone else who would be interested in learning more? Every person's faith journey begins with an invitation, so don't be afraid to invite your friends or loved ones to attend!
All non-Catholics who wish to attend RCIA, should register on our parish website or by calling the parish office (423-1239). We ask that you attend the meetings regularly if you wish to join the Church. However, there is no commitment needed to attend RCIA, nor is there any pressure to join us. Everyone is welcome!
I would also like to invite any Catholics who would like to learn more about our faith. RCIA is a great way for you become more knowledgeable about our faith and to deepen your love for Jesus! It's also an excellent way to meet and form friendships with other people in our parish who are seriously seeking to grow in their knowledge and love of Christ, just like you! The syllabus will be posted on the website, so feel free to join us for the topics you're interested in learning more about or to attend each weekly class.
I am very excited about our RCIA program this year, and I hope that many of you will join us! We have revised the curriculum; put together a wonderful team of people to help, and are preparing for what we hope will be an engaging and informative year! Lastly, please pray for us on the RCIA team, as well as for any who attend or are interested in joining the Catholic Church, so that each of us may faithfully seek out Jesus and do His will in all things.
