Walking with Purpose is a women’s Catholic bible study that aims to bring women to a closer relationship with Christ. Personal study and small group discussions each week link our everyday challenges with the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Catholic Church. Whether or not you have any Bible study experience, you are welcome to join us and learn how the Scriptures apply to our everyday lives. We welcome past participants and invite new women to join us!

Right of Christian Initiation for Adults
RCIA is a wonderful process of initiation into the Catholic faith. It is a journey of knowledge, faith, and heart as we explore together what it means to be Catholic. The RCIA, originally designed for adults seeking Baptism, has been adapted to welcome all over the age of seven seeking Baptism, Confirmation, and/or Eucharist. Enrollment is ongoing; the full process takes approximately one year, depending on the catechumen / candidate’s progress.
The Diocese of St. Petersburg requires that children / youth complete one full year of catechesis to be eligible for initiation. This year may be completed in the parish Faith Formation Program (regular grade level) or Catholic School.
