RCIA

We now turn our attention to the United States
Catechism for Adults
 approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB.) Approved by the full body of bishops at its November 2004 General Meeting, it subsequently received the recognitio of the Holy See in January of 2005 with final approval in June of 2009. We will explore this Catechism and how it pertains to Catholics in the US.

Please pray for our catechumen and candidates—Golie Ebrahimian and her husband Brian Rentfro, David Jackson, Heather Strahan, Philip Blount,
Sam Meadors and Robert Martinez.
