Faith Formation - Main Page

OLV/OLS Faith Formation

Our Faith Formation opportunities foster and nurture parishioners in their growth as Catholic Christians, empowering them to know love and serve God and, as a community of disciples, sharing their gift of faith with others.

Worshiping together at our weekly Sunday Mass and participating in the Sacraments are central to our formation. It expresses and forms our Catholic identity through Word, Sacrament, and Community. We believe the Eucharist brings us into relationship with Jesus Christ and that Christ is truly present to us in the Eucharist.

Please see our faith education program opportunities for children, young people and adults below:

Our Christian life is a lifelong and continuous transformation in Christ in which we trust in the Father's love, accept the Holy Spirit's guidance and seek holiness of life within the Church.  Our Adult Faith Formation Program at OLV-OLS is a ministry that helps the Catholic Christian to foster that journey. 

If you are interested in our program or you are curious about what is up ahead please let us know! 

OLV-OLS is committed to providing continued education and enrichment opportunities for all adults within the Parish Community.  We believe one's journey of faith is a continual conversion of heart growing in discipleship and service to the community at large.  Please join us!


RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults


The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is designed for adults and children, over the age of 7, who consciously and freely seek to be baptized and be received fully into the faith.  RCIA is also for people who have already received the Sacrament of Baptism, be it Catholic or in any other faith tradition, but now seek full communion into the Catholic Church.

If you are interested in our program or you are curious about what is up ahead please let us know!
