St. Alphonsus Liguori Opportunities for Inquirers
Do you consider yourself an Inquirer? Maybe you started reading about the Church and were drawn to her teachings. Maybe your friend or neighbor invited you to Mass once or twice and you felt called to the Body of Christ. Maybe your spouse, fiancé, or family member is Catholic and you want a unified household. There are many reasons to want to join the Church.
The process for joining the Church is the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA), which begins in September each year. Before that final step, however, there are opportunities to learn about our faith to help you make an informed decision.
In August we invite everyone to our Sunday reception hosted by the Sal Orbis Ministry to learn more about our program, volunteer to help, and sign up to begin the RCIA program. Joins us on Sunday, August 14th in the parish hall at Coffee and Donuts following the 8 am and 10:30 am Mass.
Adults interested in joining the Catholic Church must complete the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. The program lasts from Labor Day through Pentecost (near Memorial Day), and includes discussion sessions every other Sunday, Sunday Lectures (below), and other events throughout the year.
Get more information on the RCIA program here.
Every other Sunday during the school year between the 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Masses, our catechists present a short lecture on a specific topic. Upcoming topics are listed in the bulletin and on the bulletin board in the narthex. See if an upcoming topic interests you – come to one or all!

Inquiry Sessions are three-part presentations regarding a timely or pertinent theological topic or theme.
We present four series each year. They are held on Wednesday evenings following 6 p.m. Mass and last about an hour, including Q&A opportunities. All are welcome! Join us for our first series on August 31st! at 6:45 pm in the Church. Upcoming Series info.
Each year during Lent, the parish invites a nationally recognized speaker to present and lead a four-night mission event geared toward preparation for Easter, renewal, and catechesis. Evening sessions are followed by opportunities for food and fellowship. Come check it out!
