RCIA Rite of Initiation of Adults

Adults interested in becoming a Catholic, or who want to complete their initiation (communion and/or confirmation), are encouraged to participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Classes are conducted in English and Spanish and meet weekly for a designated period of time, culminating at the reception of sacraments at the Easter Vigil Mass. For more information about the RCIA process at St. Mary’s please click here.



The sacrament of Confirmation, which completes a person’s initiation into the Church, is a two-year process at St. Mary’s. Youth in the 7th grade enroll in the confirmation class and attend class every Sunday, followed by Mass, during the school year. Interspersed with formal class are opportunities for gathering with neighboring youth groups for a variety of activities, including service, dramatic arts, prayer days and retreats. Confirmation is celebrated at the end of the second year of class participation.


Adults desiring confirmation are encouraged to attend Mass regularly. Classes are formed on an on-going basis and are conducted in Spanish and English.


Participation in the Eucharist strengthens our bond to God, the Father, through partaking of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. Preparation for receiving the sacraments of First Holy Communion Eucharist and Reconciliation begins at home and is completed through the parish Religious Education program. Children enroll in and attend religious education instruction for 2 years prior to receiving their First Reconciliation and First Communion.
