RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults - RCIA.
RCIA is the process through which adults (non-Catholic or baptized Catholics) are prepared to receive the
sacraments of the Church. It is not a "program" of "classes", but a journey of faith based on the working of the
Spirit in an open heart. We meet on Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. in the St.Bernard Rectory.
Those interested in the Catholic faith with an eye towards joining our faith community are invited to
attend. There is no financial cost or obligation. For more information, contact Dianne at 707-442-8812.
2018-2019 Confirmation Classes for children 7th-12th grade: Start date October 4th - More information coming
later. Registration Form 2018
St. Bernard Catholic School Grade 7- 12
Also view our 'HOME PAGE" for a current listing of upcoming Faith Formation opportunities .
PLEASE NOTE: The Sacrament of Holy Communion may be received as early as the second grade,
and the Sacrament of Confirmation in the seventh grade. Both Sacraments require proper education,
spiritual formation and life within the Church. Thus, a two year preparation period is recommended
by the Diocese.
An Adult Faith Formation and Certification series is frequently offered through the Santa Rosa
Diocesan Office at St.Bernard Catholic School in Eureka. This series is designed for our
Catechists, Teachers and Principals, although others may attend.
For more information, contact the Diocese of Santa Rosa.
Classes begin Tuesday, September 10,2018. Please pick up a registration form in the church office or
in the church vestibule.

Parents wanting their children to receive the Sacraments must bring a copy of their child's
baptismal certificate with them.
Remember, Kindergarten will not count as a prep year for sacraments; this is an introduction to
God and our faith. 1st year prep will begin in First grade. Please feel free to contact me with
any questions or concerns.
