Shrine Book Discussion Group:  Meets monthly on Thursday evenings at 6:00 in the parish undercroft. All are welcome. Participants are asked to obtain copies of the readings through the bookseller or library of their choice. Our next meeting is March 28. We will discuss two essays by Hilaire Belloc, "On Usury" and "The Faith and Industrial Capitalism". The text for these essays can be found online, and are also included in the book Essays of a Catholic.

The Christian Life Program of catechesis is offered at various times throughout the year, in cooperation with Couples for Christ, an international Catholic lay organization.  This program is open to all adults seeking to deepen their Catholic Faith. 

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA):  Are you interested in becoming Catholic?  Do you know someone who is?  Are you an adult Catholic who has not yet been confirmed?  Perhaps you just want to learn more about the Catholic Faith, or have questions about it.  RCIA (The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the process for preparing adults for full communion with the Catholic Church. Sessions are also open to any adult desiring to learn more about Catholicism. Meetings are held on Wednesdays at 7 PM in the parish undercroft.
