Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our weekly RCIA meetings are suspended until further notice. The situation will be re-evaluated at the end of April. In the meantime, we have gathered some resources to help you soldier on in these difficult times:

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
Thursdays, 7:00 - 8:30 PM
Are you interested in sharing your faith? Learning more about your faith? Become part of the RCIA team and do both! God may be calling you to welcome others into the church! Come to an RCIA meeting on Thursday evening to see if this is for you. There's a short form for people to submit if they are interested in becoming a Catholic, or learning more about their faith. This program is ongoing, for details contact Robert Bernard. Meetings are Thursday evenings from 7:00 - 8:30 PM in the Community Room behind the kitchen.
We welcome all inquirers and encourage those who may only have "thought about it" in the past. There is no obligation, just answers to your questions.
Baptism Preparation Classes
Generally held on Tuesdays, 7:00 - 8:30 PM
Interested in bringing your child into the Catholic Church? Baptism classes are for parents who wish to have their child baptized, and for those who wish to be godparents of a baptized child. Please contact the Cathedral Office to inquire about the class schedule. Our next baptism preparation classes are scheduled for the month of January. Sessions are typically held on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 - 8:30 PM at Sacred Heart Cathedral. Parents must complete all three sessions in order to fulfill the requirements. The curriculum is Reborn and can be accessed on formed.org by registering with the parish access code: VPTQGR.
