The Santa Sophia Catechetical Ministry Office provides many opportunities to help adults deepen their faith.

Inquiry Classes offer an open and welcoming environment for learning about the Catholic Church.

The Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) continues the process of becoming Catholic, or provides the means for Catholics who have not celebrated Confirmation, Eucharist or Reconciliation to prepare for and celebrate these sacraments.

Small Church Communities provide a process for adults to gather in small groups to read Scripture, pray and share stories of their faith.

And, other special short-term weekly studies held throughout the year afford even more opportunities to study the Bible, doctrine of the Catholic Faith or topical subjects important to Catholics.

Our current programs are outlined below. Please follow the contact instructions as noted in each program or call the Catechetical Ministry Office for more information at 619-463-6011.


Inquirer's Sessions

Ongoing; start at any time.
