Faith Formation at St. Matthew’s

Adult Initiation Process (RCIA)

The process of becoming Catholic is formally known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). It is a gradual process of spiritual formation that includes prayer, sharing, and study and occurs in the context of the parish community. It is intended for adults who:

1. are unbaptized and would like to be fully initiated and welcomed into the Catholic Church through the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist

Becoming Catholic

You may have a family member or friend who is Catholic. You may be dating, engaged or married to a Catholic. You may be unbaptized or baptized in another Christian tradition. You may have been baptized a Catholic, but never received the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist. Throughout the year, many come forward seeking to learn about the Catholic faith.

Children’s Sacramental Preparation/Religious Education

The Children’s Religious Education program exists to provide sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation as well as ongoing faith formation for children of St. Matthew’s parishioners ages 6-18 who have received these sacraments. In support of parents who are the first teachers of their children, the program strives to communicate the person and message of Jesus Christ in the context of the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church.

Faith Formation Committee

Mission

The Faith Formation Committee is concerned with Christian education and spiritual enrichment of parishioners with activities designed, in the words of the Second Vatican Council's Declaration on Christian Education, to give clarity and vigor to faith; nourish a life lived according to the spirit of Christ; and lead to the proclamation of the Good News, to apostolic action and evangelization through words and deeds, and to knowing and active participation in the liturgy.
