Learn more about Bible Study, Religious Education, Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), and the Women of Faith ministry below.

The goal of the Bible Study group is to encounter God through Sacred Scripture. We use courses from leading Catholic sources and are guided by the Holy Spirit as we meet in fellowship and common inquiry to quench our thirst for spiritual nourishment and a more personal relationship with Jesus. We meet the first and third Tuesdays from 1:30 PM until 3:30 PM in the Church basement.  All are welcomed!

R.C.I.A. (or simply “RCIA”) stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, the process by which a person is initiated into the Catholic Church, through Baptism, Confirmation, and First Holy Communion. In this program, you will learn the basics of our faith and the teachings of the Church. RCIA consists of four periods: the period of Inquiry, the Catechumenate, Purification and Enlightenment, and Mystagogy. At Easter, you are invited to join the Church through the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and First Eucharist.

Women of Faith is a small group community, a Catholic voice for women, helping them to become the best versions of themselves — living vessels of Christ to the world around them. We also are prayer warriors for our community as we continuously pray for all requests including the weekly ones from the SJB bulletin. We meet the first and third Tuesdays of the month from 10:00 am until Noon.
