Encounter is a new take on lifelong faith that will meet you at your stage of life and faith. Programming comes in all sizes: short series, large groups, adults only, family friendly, in person and online. Rediscover your faith. Connect to community.

This course is for adults who want to better know the bible, but don't know where to begin. Each guide is divided into six, 90-minute segments that introduce one book of the bible. Through the parables, Jesus reveals who he is and how we are to follow him. Learn how to relate the parables of Jesus to life today.
Sundays | July 15-August 18 | 9:00-10:00am | Donnellan Room
Start your Sunday with a refresher on the basics of the Catholic faith. Why do we confess to a priest? Eucharist: What's the big deal? What is the communion of saints? Could I be a saint? There are no dumb questions here.
Spend Mary's month with the Blessed Mother and grow closer to Jesus. In this DVD-based course, Father Michael Gaitley explores how the works of various modern-day saints reflect Mary's loving and maternal heart. A book purchase is required.

Ready to enter into or form a closer relationship with Jesus Christ? Are you a Catholic who needs to make a Sacrament of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist or Confirmation) or learn more about your faith? RCIA is the place for you!
RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, Teens (RCIT) and Children (RCIC). Our team members facilitate the faith journey by encouraging a deeper relationship with God and to our community. Sessions culminate with the sacraments of initiation made at our beautiful Easter Vigil Mass. We also welcome Catholics who want to learn more about their faith or would like to act as sponsors.
Informal meetings for any who are interested occur throughout the year. Please contact us for dates and times.
