RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS (RCIA)
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the Catholic Church’s way to initiate new members. It is a process that provides support and welcome for individuals as they consider conversion to the Catholic Church, as well as for those who have been baptized but have not received the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation. The goal of the process is full communion and active participation in the life of the Catholic faith community.
Adults participating in the RCIA at Holy Trinity Parish meet regularly for several months with RCIA team members during which time they become familiar with the Catholic Faith, its liturgy, morality, devotions, and the life of the Catholic community. Those who complete this period of preparation and express the desire to enter into full communion with the Church are normally received into the Church at the Easter Vigil.

CCCOMPASS: (Cultivating a Catholic Christian Outlook and Moral Perspective Amid a Secular Society) — The focus of this informal group is to look at the lives of others who have led the Christian life, often at great cost to themselves. The goal for the group is to foster the discovery of the same compass for setting life directions and making life decisions that motivated the saints especially as there are many counter-Christian influences in our culture. Film is the main media used and the springboard for discussion. This group is open to all young Catholics of High School age and its aim is to view and discuss films that are not usually available in the theaters or on television yet which treat subjects relevant to living a life of faith and commitment often against great odds. Snacks and pizza are always served – and all are welcome and encouraged to attend. Check the weekly bulletin or call the parish office for dates and times.
