The Holy Spirit may be moving you to find out more about the Catholic Faith. For those interested in joining or returning to the Church, the journey begins with the Order of Christian Initiation for Adults, or OCIA (formerly known as RCIA, or Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). Contact Morningstar Stevenson to set up a meeting by calling (253) 845-7521, ext. 014 or send an email.
The Fall 2023 session of classes have begun for adults and families with children 7 or older who are seeking Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation - if you are ready to join, contact us soon!
The formation process begins when you are ready (all ages and backgrounds welcome), and concludes with your initiation into the Church. The more formal
portion of the process begins in mid-September and continues through the Easter
Season. (We do have distinct times of the year which are more formal in terms of content, but you are able to join at any time during the year.) The topics covered include Scripture, Tradition and our Creed, presented by hand-picked Parish staff to ordained clergy.
There is no cost to join and no obligation to complete the program. It is simply an opportunity to learn about our Faith, ask questions, build friendships, and most importantly, cultivate a personal relationship with God. We can't wait to meet you!
