Rite of Welcome 2015
RCIA Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
RCIA is the Church's preferred way for people to become members of the Church. Reestablished following Vatican Council II, this process began in the Early Church and was begun here at OLS in 1983 with nine people being welcomed as members on Easter of 1984. Every Easter since we have had the joy of welcoming new, full fledged members. We are particularly pleased with the great number of those who came through the RCIA who now fill the many ministries which are so vital to our parish.

Adult Faith Formation
There are many opportunities offered at OLS to expand and deepen your faith through groups that meet regularly and through special meetings and workshops offered at various times during the year. You can study Scripture, get involved with a book group, read and discuss the weekly gospel, or get involved with some of the many other adult education programs offered throughout the year. The following are groups that are currently meeting on a regular basis during the year. Special programs offered during Advent, or Lent, or other times during the year will be advertised in the weekly church bulletin.
All of these groups may be found in the Parish Information Calendar published in our church bulletin. Other groups offered at different times throughout the year will be announced in the church bulletin and on our website.
The church also has an open library for anyone to use to further their study or deepen their faith that is at the far end of the gathering space on the end by the cafe entrance. Books may be signed out and used at any time.
Any questions please contact Diane Rigotti - 748-8287 for more information.
