Adult Faith Formation

Becoming Catholic?


Are you thirsting for God? Do you know someone not baptized or baptized in a non-Catholic Christian tradition who is thirsting for what it means to become Catholic? Perhaps a family member, friend, co-worker or acquaintance has asked you questions about the Catholic Church? Do you know someone already Catholic but has not yet received the sacraments of Communion and Confirmation?

They may be thirsting too!


The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a place of welcome, no matter a person’s personal history, background, spirituality, or marital situation. It’s a place to ask questions and seek understanding about “things Catholic” such as what do Catholics believe and what do Catholics do? Those who have never been baptized can investigate what it means to be Christian. Those baptized in another Christian tradition can explore the process to come into full communion with the Catholic Church. And those baptized Catholic as infants but never raised as Catholic can “re-engage” with their faith tradition and receive the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation. We welcome all inquirers and hope you will consider being part of our spiritual home.

We also encourage members of our community to consider being a part of our RCIA TEAM where by sharing your faith you will help others grow in theirs. Please email Marcie Wilske at or call 702-804-8370 to begin the conversation.


Welcome Home Ministry

Are you an adult (over 19) in need of the Sacrament of Confirmation?
If so, consider participating in our next 8-session Welcome Home series beginning December 6, 2018.
See class schedule and overview here.

There are many reasons why baptized Catholics who have received the sacrament of Holy Eucharist sometimes do not complete their initiation into the Catholic Church by receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. Regardless of your situation, we invite you to grow in your faith and complete your sacramental initiation into the Catholic Church. Our Welcome Home Ministry offers a series of sessions designed to accompany you through this process. For more information, contact Marcie Wilske at (702-804-8370.

Parish Sponsors - Is This You???



Each year we have a number of adults who are exploring membership in the Catholic Church, or are desiring to complete their initiation into the Church.

Many times they come to us alone. Sponsors are people who walk this journey of faith with these candidates. Sponsors accompany the seeker as they discern God’s call to live as a Catholic, offering support, encouragement, a listening ear, and a connection with the larger parish community. Parish Sponsors join the seeker for weekly sessions and special rituals, invite them to parish events, introduce them to the life of the community, and help them grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Parish sponsors don’t have to know everything about the Church – they are not the catechists, but rather companions on the journey of faith – people who want to share the joy of their relationship with Jesus and the Church with others.

We are in need of active, faith-filled parishioners to serve as parish sponsors for those in RCIA and Welcome Home.  If this is where God is calling you, please contact Marcie Wilske (702-804-8370) at


Bible Study:  The Acts of the Apostles

Acts tells the story of the spread of the Gospel and the growth of the early Church following the Ascension of Jesus. Join us for this 10-week study as we witness the bold preaching of Peter, the courageous travels of Paul, and the heroic witness of the disciples as they take the Christian faith to the ends of the earth. Classes begin Monday, November 19 and will be offered on Monday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and repeated on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  Each participant will receive a commentary and study guide. Cost is $25 for study materials. All are welcome - newcomers and experienced Bible Study students alike! For more information, contact Marcie Wilske at (702-804-8370).
