RCIA/ADULT CONFIRMATION

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is open to all adults interested in entering into full communion with the Catholic Church.  The sessions will begin in September.  We invite all adults who are experiencing the call to the Catholic faith and desire to know the Lord and receive the sacraments to attend our inquiry sessions.  You will be met by some faithful Catholics who love the Lord and would consider it a privilege  to guide you as you reflect on scripture and the teachings of the Catholic faith.  The sessions are also open to adults who have not received the sacrament of Confirmation and are interested in receiving  catechesis to deepen their baptismal commitment enabling them to receive the sacrament of Confirmation.
If you are interested in joining the RCIA program or
the Adult Confirmation program,
please call the rectory at 732-738-7940 x 27.
Teachers at OLP PREP are members of our Catholic community called to work in partnership with parents and the pastor on our goal to teach the Catechism of The Catholic Church.

*passionate about the teaching the Catholic Faith
*enthusiastic about the role of the Catholic Church in the local community,  the diocese and the world

REMINDER: CHURCH KNEELERS

Thank you, and God Bless.
