The Diocese provides occasional retreats and other opportunities to learn for both roles. RCIA meets weekly every Tuesday at 7:30 pm in the parish annex, from mid-September until Pentecost Sunday. In addition, Catechists take turns leading a discussion of the current readings with candidates every Sunday from Advent until Passion Sunday.
