The Order of Christian Initiation of Adults (OCIA) is the process whereby adults enter the Catholic Church. OCIA classes are held weekly, and over several months those who attend the OCIA classes are educated on what the Catholic Church believes and can ask questions about those beliefs in a non-judgemental setting.
Just because you start, OCIA doesn’t mean you are committed to finishing. If you are merely curious about what Catholicism is, please feel free to come. All are welcome.
Are You Someone or Do You Know Someone Who…
- Has expressed an interest in becoming Catholic?
- Has a child over the age of seven who has not been baptized?
- Was baptized Catholic as a child but has not celebrated the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist?
We offer an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn more about our faith. Sessions focus on the teachings and experience of the Church and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist during the Easter season. There are separate sessions for children or youth. You are welcome to participate in the process with your questions, your insights, and your faith story in a warm, accepting setting.
The process of initiation is a gradual one that takes place within the community of the faithful. The formation begins in October.
We invite anyone interested to call Fr. Eke or Tracey Haggart (Youth) @ 989-366-4738 or Steve Sandoval (Adults) @ 801-644-6085
