Learning More about Our Catholic Faith
St. Barnabas Catholic Community invites you to learn what it means to be Catholic and to delve deeper and understand the Catholic Faith through the Adult Initiation Process (R.C.I.A).
Interested in the Catholic faith and want to know more? Are you Catholic, but have never been confirmed? Are you from another denomination and what to explore and embrace the Catholic Faith? Fall classes begin on AUGUST 23, 2021 from 7pm-9pm via online Zoom. E-mail: StBarnabasRCIA@gmail.com to sign-up.
Are you interested in sharing your faith with those who are interested in our Catholic Faith?
The R.C.I.A. – Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults – is a process whereby those who are interested in becoming Catholic or those wishing to complete their sacraments of initiation, participate in sessions, dismissals, discussions, study of scripture, the tenets of our Catholic Faith, and fellowship. Their experience is always deeper and richer when they have passionate witnesses walking with them on their road to full initiation in the Church.
Is the Holy Spirit calling you to this most faith deepening ministry? Have you been wondering what you can volunteer for in our parish? There are many different opportunities. If so, please call the Parish Office at (562) 424-8595.
The catechumens and candidates are sent on scheduled Sundays to pray over and ponder the scriptures and to learn more deeply how to live as disciples of Jesus. This sending forth is a form of hospitality because they cannot join us yet as the table of the Eucharist.
