Fr. Kevin, the parish staff, and along with our Parish Family, welcome you and hope you will join us in this great journey to learn more about our faith and to discover God’s plan for each one of us. For those who would just like to learn more about the Catholic faith – with no commitments – we offer you the opportunity to join the class as well!

Classes are held once a week on Tuesdays from 7:00 to 8:30 PM. If you have any questions or would like to sign up please call the Parish Office at (586) 791-3930  ext. 328 or Matt Hunt  at huntm@stthecla.com

The Order of Christian Initiation of Adults is an ancient tradition dating back to the early Church. While some of us are blessed to be born into a rich faith, many of us do not find the Beauty and Truth of the Catholic Church until we are adults.

The Church welcomes everyone, especially those who actively seek Jesus Christ and his Church. We believe that this is not something to be taken lightly and thus encourage personal discernment and preparation.

If joining the Church is something you fully believe is right, the RCIA program leads you to full membership within the Catholic Church.OCIA is a formalized program consisting of classroom work and practical Catholic living that starts at the beginning of the school year and is completed during the following Easter Vigil as you receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist.

For more information about OCIA, contact Matt Hunt.
