expected to attend one Baptism Preparation Session if they have never had a child baptized or if this will be their first baptism at Our Lady of Lourdes. Parents of other children who have not attend a preparation session in three years or more are also expected to attend. Please contact the Parish Office to register for one of these sessions. We encourage you to attend while you are still expecting.
R.C.I.A. is the process through which people become fully initiated members of the Roman Catholic Church. With its vision that includes a life of ongoing conversion, RCIA begins with Inquiry, the first in four-stage process. Inquiry meetings are for any of the following:
2) baptized Catholics who have not received Holy Communion and/or Confirmation;
3) Catholics who wish to update their faith; or
4) individuals in interfaith marriages who wish to gain some understanding of their partner's faith.
