The Adult Catechumenate (RCIA)
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which adults are prepared to enter the Roman Catholic Church. RCIA is directed by a team of lay persons, using as the basis for catechesis, Sacred Scripture and Catholic tradition. Meetings consist of lectures, discussions, and meditative reflection all aimed at building a foundation of faith, prayer and Christian living. Each person is accompanied on their journey of faith by a sponsor who represents the parish community. The RCIA is open to all who have never been baptized, those baptized in other faith denominations and those who have been baptized Catholic and have never had any instruction, or those who are seeking a life in Christ.

Confirmation for Adults
Parishes and Vicariate Bishops offer during Spring Confirmation celebrations for adults.  Active Catholics, age 19 and older who have celebrated the sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist and have not been confirmed are invited to participate in the program.

Religious Education of Children
The Religious Education Program provides religious instruction for children who are not attending parochial schools. The Religious Education Program coordinates preparation for Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation for all parish elementary school children. Click here to email and request information.

Evangelization Team
St. Barbara’s Evangelization Team is the “spark plug” of our parish. Our goal is to kindle the flame of faith in the hearts of our church community and to reach out and bring Christ to those within our parish, those who have stopped coming to church and those who are seeking to know Christ.
