I’m so grateful to Karen Stevens for helping me to piece together an “in-person” religious ed. program here at the Cathedral, after having an online only program last year due to COVID. Karen worked in this role here at the Cathedral several years ago, and she has been extremely helpful in getting us up and running again. We are still in the early stages of planning but we would like to begin taking signups. The program will start Sunday, September 19th and take place most Sundays from 10:15am until 11:15am. This will allow a family to have their child(ren) enrolled in the program and also attend either the 9:15am Mass (beforehand) or the 11:15am Mass (afterwards).
Signup forms are available in the Cathedral narthex, or can be downloaded here…
or Families can enroll online at the link to the Registration Form found in the Menu above under Faith Formation
The Sacrament of Confirmation is generally administered by Bishop Matano to 9th graders at the end of that second year of classes. Confirmation classes will also take place at the same time as Faith Formation: Sundays from 10:15am until 11:15am.
The RCIA program is an intellectual and spiritual journey for those individuals who have never been baptized, but are interested in exploring the teachings of the Catholic faith in view of potentially seeking baptism and entrance into the full life of the Church next spring. But I also find that RCIA classes can also serve as helpful formation for those nonCatholic Christians who are already baptized, but are considering “converting” to the Catholic faith by being received into full communion with the Catholic Church. Depending on interest, I am hoping to host these Wed. evening from 5:30 to 6:30 pm at the Cathedral starting Sept. 15th.
