OCIA - Religious Education for Adults

The English-Speaking Order of Christian Initiation for Adults (OCIA) is for you if you are an adult who:

  • Is curious about what the Catholic Church teaches.
  • Is thinking about joining but needs more information and time to discern.
  • Has been baptized in the Catholic Church but still needs to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist and/or Confirmation.
  • Speaks fluent English (See Spanish Ministries for the Spanish-Speaking OCIA contact.)
  • Wants to share your Catholic faith as a Sponsor.

The class for the English-Speaking OCIA meets every Wednesday evening from 7:00-8:30pm in the Catechumen room (September-Pentecost). Whether you are seeking to know more about the Catholic faith before joining, have been baptized intothe Catholic Church and need to complete your Sacraments, or are a parishioner willing to serve as a “spiritual friend” and share your Catholic faith in the role of a Sponsor to help those on their journey, St. Mary Parish’s OCIA program is for you!
