In response to Jesus' loving plea to spend time with him, Holy Cross Parish offers the faithful an opportunity to worship.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.)

The R.C.I.A. is a process, a journey of faith and spiritual development for adults desiring to become new members of the Roman Catholic Church and for those baptized members wishing to complete their initiation within the Church. This process is community based with its primary focus on the breaking open of the Word of God. Throughout the process, adults are encouraged to deepen their relationship to God, self, others and the cosmos. Those who choose to journey with us are instructed in the essentials of the faith.

This program begins in the fall and ends after Easter time, where full participants may receive their Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and First Communion.
