Opportunities to learn and grow in the Catholic Faith

RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation

RCIA, which stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process through which non-baptized men and women enter the Catholic Church. It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass. Participants in the RCIA are known as catechumens. They undergo a process of conversion as they study the Gospel, profess faith in Jesus and the Catholic Church, and receive the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Holy Eucharist. The RCIA process follows the ancient practice of the church and was restored by the Second Vatican Council as the normal way adults prepare for baptism. In 1974, the Rite for Christian Initiation for Adults was formally approved for use in the United States.

RCIA classes begin at St. William every fall and continue through Easter Holy Week.  For more information contact the Parish Office or Fr. Balash.

Little Rock Scripture Study

Little Rock Scripture Study provides an effective method of Bible study that shapes God’s people into faithful and active disciples. Through prayer and study, adults learn more about the Bible and its message, learn to use the tools that help in understanding, grow in their appreciation for Christian community life, and encounter Christ in ways that are transforming. Little Rock Scripture Study is published by Liturgical Press.

Summer Book Club

Do you enjoy reading?  If so, perhaps the Summer Book Club is for you.  Every summer, a book is chosen and an enjoyable evening is spent discussing the book…perhaps some wine and snacks are involved also!  Summer 2021 book was entitled, “The Mountains Sing” by Nguen Phan Que Mai.

Word on Fire

Word on Fire Catholic Ministries is a nonprofit global media apostolate that supports the work of Bishop Robert Barron and reaches millions of people to draw them into— or back to— the Catholic faith.

Word on Fire is evangelical; it proclaims Jesus Christ as the source of conversion and new life. Word on Fire is Catholic; it utilizes the tremendous resources of the Roman Catholic tradition—art, architecture, poetry, philosophy, theology, and the lives of the saints— in order to explain and interpret the event of Jesus Christ.

Word on Fire Catholic Ministries exists to draw people into the body of Christ, which is the Church, and thereby give them access to all the gifts that Jesus wants his people to enjoy. To be most effective in this mission, Word on Fire places an emphasis and urgency on the use of contemporary forms of media and innovative communication technologies.

Six Weeks with the Bible

For busy adults who want to study the Bible but don’t know where to begin, Six Weeks with the Bible provides an inviting starting point. Each guide is divided into six concise, 90-minute segments that introduce one book of the Bible. Edited by Scripture authority Kevin Perrotta, these Bible studies require no prior knowledge of Scripture, and all biblical text is printed in the guides, which means no additional study aids are required.
