These classes teach the basic faith formation of the Catholic Church and are the customary method to initiate a person into full membership and participation into the Catholic Church. The classes are also intended for Catholic adults who have never received the Sacrament of Confirmation, as well as for those Catholics who simply desire to know more about their faith that comes to us from the Apostles. They are held Wednesday evenings from September through April. Volunteers help with small group discussion, teachings, snacks, dismissals at Mass, the Rites, etc.
