Afternoon at the Movies
Afternoon at The Movies
Our feature for the month of January is "Overcomer". High school basketball coach John Harrison and his team face an uncertain future when their town's largest manufacturing plant shuts down unexpectedly. As hundreds of people move away, John reluctantly agrees to coach cross-country, a sport he doesn't even like. His outlook soon changes when he meets Hannah Scott, an unlikely runner who pushes herself to the limit. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new friend, John starts to train Hannah for the biggest race of her young life. We will be showing this film on Wednesday, January 15th, from 1:00-3:30 pm in the Catholic Life Center Meeting Room. No pre-registration required, free to all. Snack provided. PG, 119 min.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
RCIA instruction takes place each year, in small group or individual sessions, with initiation into the Catholic Faith taking place during the Easter Vigil Mass.
Who is RCIA for?
- The unbaptized: The primary focus of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is on those who are not already Christian and have not been catechized.
- Baptized but uncatechized: Those who have been baptized either as Catholics or as members of another Christian community, such as Baptist, Methodist, or Lutheran. These individuals may not have received complete religious formation or instruction, and they may or may not have celebrated Confirmation or Eucharist.
- Those seeking full Catholic Communion: These are baptized, practicing Christians from other denominations, who seek entry into the Catholic Church.
For more information, read our Frequenty Asked Questions.
RCIA includes the celebration of the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Eucharist as well as all the rites of the catechumenate. The initiation of adults is a gradual process that takes place within the community of the faithful. Together with the catechumens, the faithful reflect upon the value of the paschal mystery, renew their own conversion, and by their example lead the catechumens to obey the Holy Spirit more generously.
