Adult Faith Formation is the lifelong process of developing a personal relationship with God as disciples of Christ. It is a life changing commitment to the teachings of Christ and designed to help Christians develop a joyful spiritual life. This life resides in our community through attendance at Mass and participation in the life of our parish through devotionals, prayer groups, bible studies and community service. Christ calls us into action to follow His way of Kindness, Compassion and Generosity. As followers of Christ we are compelled to live in the world as His disciples and embrace His Word with all our heart, mind and soul.
Evangelization is an integral part of Faith Formation; all Christians are called to spread the Good News and bring others to Christ. For those who are unbaptized in the faith, or seeking to become Catholic from another Christian faith are welcomed through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)
The apostolate of the laity is sharing in the salvation mission of the Church. Through Baptism and Confirmation, all are appointed to this apostolate by the Lord himself. (Lumen Gentium, 33)
TEAMRCIA is the ministry dedicated to Evangelization. TeamRCIA works with those seeking to learn more about our catholic faith and provides venues for the faithful to deepen their faith through devotionals and social events. Meetings are held Tuesday Evenings at 7:00pm in the Our Lady of Pompeii Church Hall in person with Zoom on the big screen in the Hall. This is an open meeting and we invite anyone interested in joining the Catholic Church, seeking to complete their Sacraments, or would like to become a faith sponsor, to join us for robust discussion and prayer. Sponsorship is open to any Confirmed Catholic wanting to learn more about their faith, help welcome newcomers into our community, and join with us in Evangelization.
