Are You An Adult Interested In Learning More About The Catholic Faith?

St Raymond’s Adult Religious Education offers two venues:

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)- the process by which adults are instructed in the Doctrine of the Church and are prepared to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, First Penance (Confession) , Holy Eucharist (Communion) and Confirmation.   This class is offered on Monday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 pm in the Rectory Classroom (Maurer Room) from September 8, 2014 until March 30, 2015 (except for Holidays). This program is designed to prepare 1) adult non-Catholics seeking information to understand and/or to enter the Catholic Church, and 2) adult baptized Catholics seeking First Holy Communion and/or Confirmation.  Anyone who desires a better understanding of Catholic teachings and practices are welcomed.  No registration is required. If you have questions call Bob or Bev Ward, 703-644-5873 or via e-mail at roberteward3@verizon.net.

Bible Study- St Raymond’s will offer a study of the Book of Acts and the Epistles of Paul with an in depth look at how the Sacred Scriptures serve as the foundation for Catholic doctrine and teachings. The program is offered every Tuesday morning from 9:30 to 11:00 A.M. (except for holidays) in the Parish Hall in the basement of the Church; and again on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 P.M. in the same location.   Classes will be offered from Tuesday, September 9, 2014, until Tuesday, May 19, 2015.

The series will consist of lectures and discussions led by Bob Ward (MA in Theology with concentration on Sacred Scriptures from Notre Dame Graduate School of Christendom College). The course is also related to the Great Adventure: A Journey Through the Bible presented by Jeff Cavins on EWTN. No prerequisites or prior study required. All are welcome. Please bring your Bible. For further information please call Bob Ward at 703-644-5873 or via e-mail at roberteward3@verizon.net.
