Religious Education for children grades one through eight who attend a public school meet weekly on Wednesday evenings during the school year from 6:15 pm-7:30 pm in St. Thomas School. Attendance at the CCD classes is necessary for two years for any person who requests preparation for a sacrament.
During the Fall and the Winter/Spring season, Adult Education/enrichment sessions are offered. Topics are different every session. The meetings take place on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm, usually in the lower level of the church.
There is a reference to the R.C.I.A. under sacraments. Anyone who is contemplating the possibility of joining the Catholic Church will attend these weekly sessions beginning in October and concluding a few weeks after Easter.
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Children–a parallel program to the R.C.I.A.-is a nine-month program to acquaint children who are at the “age of reason”- age 7 or 8-in the understanding of the Catholic faith, in particular the Sacraments of Initiation which they receive at the end of the study at Easter.
The Re-Membering Program is designed for Catholics who have been away from the Church and would like to re-establish ties with it. The meetings give time to answer questions and learn about recent changes in the Church.
