- Phase 1 Goal – 9.5 million
- Current Pledges – 4.1 million
- Parish families Contacted – 12%
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), or Ordo Initiationis Christianae Adultorum, is a process developed by the Catholic Church for prospective converts to Catholicism who are above the age of infant baptism. Candidates are gradually introduced to aspects of Catholic beliefs and practices. The basic process applies to adults and children who have reached catechetical age. For those who join an RCIA process it is a period of reflection, prayer, instruction, discernment, and formation.
Catholic Bible studies are an important way of understanding the Catholic Faith. The more we can understand the inspired writings in the books of the Bible, the more we understand the beliefs, celebrations and rituals of our Faith. Simply reading the Bible can be confusing, so reliable Bible studies are indispensable. We have a number of Bible Studies happening in our parish. Contact the Parish Office for more information.

Family Ministry is for all families of Immaculate Conception parish regardless of age, size, or make up. Our goal is to pull all families into the life of the parish, affirm and equip parents as primary teachers of the faith, and encourage the building up of the Domestic Church. We host regular family events throughout the year. Watch the bulletin and social media for Family events and information.
