Catechesis is a responsibility of the entire Christian community. This is should not be the work of catechists and priests alone, but of the whole community of the faithful. The Christian community follows the development of catechetical processes, for children, young people and adults, as a duty that involves and binds it directly. (GDC 220) A fully Christian community can exist only when a systematic catechesis of all its members takes place and when an effective and well developed catechesis of adults is regarded as the central task of the catechetical enterprise. (ACCC, no. 25)


The first catechists in any child’s life are the family members with whom he or she lives. What happens at home – both positive and negative – provides lessons for life. In the family, faith is shared as part of the unfolding of daily life. The home or “domestic church” provides a real place in which a child learns to live his or her faith as well as understanding it.

Our goal is to create a program of lifelong faith formation that is centered in and flows out of the events of Church life. It embraces all ages and generation, promotes faith growth at home and promotes participation in Church life.

Becoming Catholic

Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process whereby adults enter the Catholic Church. RCIA classes are held on Tuesday evenings during the school year. During the classes, those who attend the RCIA are educated on what the Catholic Church believes and are given the opportunity to learn and ask questions about those beliefs.

Volunteers are needed to serve as spiritual companions and sponsors for RCIA participants.

Contact Deacon Jeff Drzycimski at or 901-260-2888 for information or to enroll.
