RCIA/Adult Formation

Romans 15:7 

“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." 

Have you thought about learning more about the Catholic faith?

Are you searching for “something” that helps to bring you closer to God?

Do you feel the sense of “believing” that you have faith but wish to deepen that faith? 

Here at St. Bernard Parish, there is Adult Faith Formation available for anyone 18 years or older questioning or searching to know more about the Catholic faith.

  • Perhaps you have been baptized in the Catholic Church but did not continue your religious education so you are in need of preparing for the other Sacraments of Initiation-Confirmation and Eucharist.
  • Perhaps you were baptized and received First Eucharist but have fallen away from the Church or did not receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
  • Perhaps you have never been baptized and feel moved to learn about the Catholic Church to become a part of this Church. [RCIA=The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults]

You are welcomed to come and learn! 

We ask that you call the parish office: 508-644-5585

     Office Hours: Monday-Friday 9:30am-3:30pm


Attend one of the weekend Masses and introduce yourself to our pastor, Fr. Hebert.  (Then call the office during office hours. OR If you are interested in becoming fully initiated into the Catholic faith, please contact Fr. Hebert at: stbernardassonet@rectory.comcastbiz.net
