Adult Faith Formation

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Contact: Carrie Montemayor at

Are you an adult and not baptized or not Catholic and want to know more about the basic beliefs of the Catholic Church?  Do you want to become Catholic?  Are you a baptized Catholic and needing the sacraments of Confirmation and/or Eucharist?

Start the process now to inquire into the Catholic faith or receive your sacraments by scheduling an initial interview with Carrie Montemayor, Coordinator of Adult Faith Formation, or 479-442-0890 x244.  Starting the process does not require a commitment to become Catholic. It just opens the door.

The next RCIA session will run from September 2018 through Easter 2019. The Tuesday sessions will be held from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Childcare is available. A Friday morning or afternoon session may be offered depending on demand. Please contact Carrie as soon as possible for Friday daytime classes.

Called & Gifted: Discerment of Charisms

Contact: Kathleen Blessing

Darlene Martucci David Lauderdale

Catholic evangelist Sherry Weddell, M.A. and Fr. Michael Sweeney O.P. have spent many years researching and working with thousands of Catholics all over the world to begin the process of discerning the charisms each of us have been given by God at their Baptism and Confirmation. They have put together a two part program that is easy to follow, to help Parishes of all sizes begin the discernment process. Their mission is to help equip Parishes to form Lay Apostles.

We invite you to join us for the Called and Gifted Class. Come, let the Holy Spirit enter your heart and set you on fire with the gifts God has given you to build up his Kingdom on earth.

Child care will be provided at $5/child per class to be collected on the day of the class. The St. Joseph’s June session is beginning soon. If you miss the June session, there will be more opportunities to come.

Women's Bible Study

Saint Joseph’s Women’s Bible Study (formerly known as MOMS) is a Catholic Bible/book study for women of all ages. This group provides women with the opportunity to grow in their faith with others who have similar values and beliefs. We typically start a new study each fall and each spring. We break when school is out of session.

Fall Session: Wisdom: God's Vision For LifeJeff Cavins and Thomas Smith highlight the practical guidance we can gain from the books referred to as the “wisdom literature” of the Bible. Through Proverbs, Wisdom, Sirach, and Ecclesiastes, Scripture provides insight into living wisely in all areas of our lives.


Thursday Bible Study Group

Contact: Cindy Stophlet

Men, women, mothers, couples, all ages welcome! We usually start a new study each fall and spring, going on break when school is out of session. Childcare is typically available upon request.

Coming Fall of 2018: Lectio- Peter: The Cornerstone of Catholicism. 

"The character of St Peter is both inspiring and confounding to many of us.  How could a stubborn and impulsive fisherman become the "rock" upon which Jesus would build his Church?  Bringing together biblical accounts, historical evidence, Church teaching, classical art, and personal insights, Dr. Tim Gray gives a fresh perspective on Simon Peter that is immediately informative and relevant to our lives.  After all, if Jesus could bring out the very best in someone like Peter, then there is hope for the rest of us."
