Our Mission

  • The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) names the process by which interested persons gradually become members of the Roman Catholic Church.
  • RCIA is primarily a journey of faith from the awareness of stirring the faith and curiosity within one’s heart to a life of faith, love, and justice lived in communion with Catholics throughout the world.

Our Goals

  • To initiate others into living the Christian life in the Catholic tradition.

Director of Adult Faith Formation/RCIA

  • The minimum age requirement is 18 years of age.
  • Participants in the RCIA process meet on Sunday mornings after 9:30 am Mass from September through May.

  • Unbaptized adults.

LANDINGS: A reconciliation ministry of the Paulist Fathers, is a program that invites all Catholic parishes and communities to reach out to Catholics who have been away from the Church or who struggle in their relationship with God and the Church. In a welcoming and non-judgmental way, small groups of active lay Catholics join with returning or inactive Catholics to share their spiritual journeys and explore their Catholic faith. 

Our Lady of the Assumption offers the Landings program for six weeks in the Fall (before Christmas) and six weeks in the Spring (before Easter). 

Please contact Sr. Carolyn at the Parish Office if you or someone you know might be interested.




Beginning Friday, April 22, from 9:45 - 11:00 am, and for 4 more consecutive weeks, we will be starting up with a new book:  The Mindful Catholic by Dr. Gregory Bottaro.  In this book, Dr. Bottaro explains how the practice of mindfulness can help us become aware of the present moment—and to accept and process what is happening.  Catholic mindfulness is a practical way to trust God more in our lives; it helps bridge the gap between faith and everyday life so we can feel the sense of safety and peace God intends us to have.

The five-week book study will take place in person in the Rectory Meeting Room after the 9:00 am daily Mass.  For registering, please contact Sr. Carolyn at the parish office or at:

Beginning Monday, April 25th, from 10:00 – 11:15 am, and for 5 more consecutive weeks, a new scripture series on the Acts of the Apostles will begin.  The Acts of the Apostles follows after the Gospel of John and tells of the early Church after Christ’s Ascension.  It will also be one of the readings each Sunday during the Easter Season.

The six-week series will take place in person in the Rectory Meeting Room.  Books are available for purchase at $12 in the Rectory Office.  For registering, please contact Sr. Carolyn at the parish office or at:
