Faith

Faith Formation is an important aspect of life at St Aloysius. A variety of programs lead us on our journey. The RCIA and Religious Education Programs are directed by parish staff members. Other programs are led by volunteers from the parish.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the process through which adults enter into the Catholic faith.  RCIA is a spiritual journey where one processes through various phases and implemented through various rites.  The person’s spiritual growth is encouraged and enhanced through weekly reflection on God’s Word and Church teachings, doctrine and traditions. Janilyn Dennis is the Director of the RCIA Program

Religious Education

St. Aloysius Parish offers religious education classes on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 - 8:00 PM for students in grades 1-8 who do not attend St. Aloysius School. High school students in grades 9-12 should plan to attend on Wednesdays from 6:30 - 8:00 PM. These classes are an important part of each student’s religious formation. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of parents and Church working together to pass on our Catholic faith.  The Religious Education Program is under the direction of Jean Bargiel.
