Becoming Catholic

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness.

John 1:1-4

The Church has no other light than Christ’s. The Church is like a moon, all its light reflected from Christ.

In the Church, God is calling together his people from all the ends of the earth. “Church” designates the liturgical assembly, the local community, and the whole universal community of believers. She draws her life from the Word and the Body of Christ and so herself becomes Christ’s Body.

RCIA

The RCIA program at SS. Cyril & Methodius seeks to instruct candidates in the Catholic Faith that comes to us from Christ through the Apostles as it is faithfully preserved by the Magisterium of the Church. Our program provides an opportunity for those who are open to the Holy Spirit to grow in understanding and appreciation of God’s Revelation, primarily through Sacred Scripture. Fundamentally, being Catholic means being on the true path, the one intended by God to achieve our best possible relationship with Him. In our search for faith, confirmed by reason, we are given the opportunity to experience a life-changing conversion of heart calling us to lead a life in imitation of Christ. This transformation is facilitated by God’s grace made available to us through the Sacraments, particularly the Eucharist, which is Christ’s most intimate presence with us. Ultimately, our relationship with God, through Christ and His Church is essential to our perfect happiness. As a part of the Body of Christ, we participate in the life of the Trinity, “the love that never ends.” The reward is great, for the way of Christ leads to eternal life and contrary ways to destruction.

Classes begin in September on Thursdays at 7:00 pm.
