We have two great adult formation opportunities this Spring!

Registration is free. Don't hesitate to join a class, even if you cannot commit to every session. Childcare will be provided for the evening sessions!
Email Dr. Chris Diffenderfer, Director of Faith Formation, with any questions.
Thinking about becoming Catholic? Know someone who is? Maybe you were baptized but never received Eucharist or Confirmation? Maybe you are new to the Christian faith and would like to know more. The RCIA Ministry is designed to help answer questions and get people acquainted (or re-acquainted) with God and the Church. There has never been a better time than now to ask how you can become a fully initiated Catholic.
Don’t delay—call (843.471.2677) or email Dr. Chris Diffenderfer, our Director of Faith Formation, today. Take that first step on a journey of a lifetime!
Register now for Baptism preparation
May 17, 24 and 31!
Whether you are first-time parents or have never been formally prepared for the Baptism of your children, you are invited to attend a three week preparation class, with those who will serve as your child's godparents. If you are expecting (or hoping to have children soon), you are welcome and encouraged to participate before the birth of your child. We will hold the three week Baptism preparation several times through the year, starting this September.
The sacrament of Baptism is the first of the three Sacraments of Initiation and is the first of the seven sacraments in the Catholic Church. Baptism removes the effects of Original Sin which taints all of humanity by Adam and Eve's sin, and welcomes the recipient into the Church, the Mystical Body of Christ on earth.
For more information about Baptism at Saint Clare of Assisi, or to register for the Baptism preparation classes, please visit our parish web site or email Father West.
If you cannot make this class, look for future opportunities as they are scheduled for the coming year.
