Order of Christian Initiation of Adults (OCIA)
In the Gospel of John, two would-be disciples ask Jesus where He lived. He said simply, “come and see.” Today Jesus continues to invite people to “come and see” and to get to know Him and His Church.
We want to invite inquirers to come and learn more about Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church, and ways we can come to better know, love, and serve the Lord. We are beginning with an inquiry process that will enable seekers to find out more about God, the Catholic Church, and themselves.
We will meet on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in Saint Francis DeSales Catholic Church, 614 South Oakwood Avenue, Beckley for evening Mass, with sessions following downstairs.
Saint Augustine, a fifth century Doctor of the Church, once wrote “To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek God the greatest adventure; to find God the greatest human achievement.”
You are cordially invited to journey with us and see for yourself. For more information please contact Deacon Harry Evans at 304-549-4590 or byemailat firstname.lastname@example.org.
