Adult Faith Formation

All Christians are called to share their faith with others. Our parish offers a variety of programs through which adults can learn and grow in holiness. Programs such as the RCIA and Returning Catholics are community- based programs that need mentors, presenters and sponsors to assist other adults in their journey of faith. Our Scripture studies and prayer groups are also in need of facilitators and hospitality ministers.

If you would like to assist in any of these programs, contact: Fr. Michael at (916)443-5442.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the means by which interested people prepare for membership in the Catholic Church. It is a process of formation beginning each September (usually the third week) and continuing with weekly meetings of ninety minutes duration in the social hall culminating in baptism, confirmation and the Eucharist at Easter.

Parish members are invited to participate in this process of welcoming others into the church by becoming sponsors, presenters or team members. The classes incorporate explanations of the faith, discussions and other experiences all aimed at achieving both knowledge of and a relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. The Holy Spirit Church RCIA Team under the leadership of our Pastor, Fr. Michael, includes both clergy and lay members. Both long time Catholics and newly welcomed members of the community are encouraged to participate in this ministry.

Contact Fr. Michael Hebda at the Rectory for more information, (916)443-5442.

Children’s Faith Formation (CFF)

This program is coordinated by Patricia Scott. It relies mainly on dedicated lay volunteers to run the program. These are classes designed for children in the Catholic faith who are in grades K – 8 and are not attending parochial schools. Meetings are onMondays from 5:45 - 7:00 pm at the Holy Spirit School.

Volunteers for this ministry are needed in a variety of ways…teaching, acting as aides for classes and assisting with special events. While advance training is not necessary, on-going training is provided for those who are teaching in this program.

Patricia may be contacted at (916)443-5442.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) meets during the 9:30 am and 11:00 am Masses on Sundays. This program is run by dedicated lay volunteers and is for the school age children in K through 4th grade that want to hear the gospel message in more elementary ways. The children are taken out of Mass for approximately 20 minutes to hear the word of God and talk about how it relates to their own lives.

Volunteers for this ministry help children receive the Word of God in a way that they can understand. Volunteers are needed both to proclaim the Word and lead the service as well as support in gathering the children and tending to their needs during this time. Sufficient volunteers would make it possible for us to extend this ministry to other Sunday liturgies.

Sunday Preschool Program

Holy Spirit’s Sunday preschool program is designed for 3 to 5 year olds. Preschool meets during 9:30 Mass every 1st, 2nd, and 4th Sundays with the exception of holidays. Children enjoy learning about God and Catholic values through prayers, literature, music, and art. You are never too young to become a part of the Holy Spirit Community!

Volunteers in the Sunday preschool program remain with the children throughout the 9:30 liturgy, assisting with caring for the children, preparing materials and projects and leading specific activities.

Youth Ministry

Our Youth Ministry program serves the faith needs of our teens. The group provides an opportunity for adolescents to form community, have fun, provide service, and learn more about their faith and prayer. Our Youth Group is currently not active as we are in need of volunteers.

Volunteers are needed in this ministry to assist with events, mentoring of the youth and supervision. All volunteers are asked to be open to sharing with young people what faith means to you.
