Adult Faith Formation

Adult Confirmation and RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

St. Jude Parish is committed to helping Catholics of any age continue their journey of faith.

Adult Confirmation

For practicing adult Catholics who are attending mass regularly and have been Baptized and have received their First Holy Communion, and wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.  There are two sets of 10 week classes offered in the Fall and Spring of every year taught by Deacon Faustin Archuleta and are free.  At the end of the 10 week period, students will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Classes meet on Thursdays from 7:00pm to 9:00pm in Room #6.  Please call the R.E. Office for more information at 505-897-4006.

*Please note: The current set of Adult Confirmation classes started March 1, 2018. Please check back for information on the next set of classes that will begin in Fall 2018. 

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process through which interested adults are gradually introduced to the Catholic faith and way of life.  All who are interested in becoming Catholic or anyone who has been Baptized and need to complete their sacraments or anyone who wants to learn more about their faith are encouraged to attend these free classes.  Students will receive all their Sacraments at the Easter Vigil Mass.

*The next set of RCIA classes will start in August or September 2018.  Classes meet on Wednesdays from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.  Please call the R.E. Office for more information at 505-897-4006.
