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 runs from September 10, 2019 through Easter 2020 and will meet weekly on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:15. Nursery can be available depending on demand. A daytime session may be added as well, depending on need. Please contact Carrie as soon as possible if a daytime option is needed.

Called & Gifted: Discerment of Charisms

Contacts: 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.

Ananias Training:

This training seeks to help us become Ananias' to one another, within the Church and out in the world! (see Acts 9:10-19) You will learn to:

  • Recognize the stages of another's spiritual journey through compassionate listening:
  • Listen lovingly to their real questions and opinions about God in order to guide the discovery of how God is present and active in a person's life:
  • Talk about his or her relationship with God; share how he or she came to be a disciple of Jesus; and 
  • Share Jesus' story in response to the spiritual hunger of another.
