  • Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)



    Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the process for adults who are not members of the catholic congregation on a global level to share the church and faith.
    Each of us is on a spiritual journey toward our loving God. RCIA is an opportunity to learn more about the Catholic faith journey and to grow deeper in our spiritual relationship with God. Contact Jane Johnson, 682-3319, x 107 to inquire or to register.

    The RCIA process consists of prayer, Scripture, instructions, discussion, questions and much more. It is an opportunity for those already Catholic to share our Catholic faith and our understanding of the Catholic tradition. RCIA also consists of building relationships with others on their journey to God. The process is designed for adults who are consciously and freely seeking the will of God. It is concerned with the making of Christians who follow Jesus wholeheartedly. It is especially concerned with helping people transform their lives to the will of Jesus Christ. Childcare is provided if needed.

    Tuesday evenings, 7:00-9:00 PM, St. Matthew's Family Life Center Conference Room; formal sessions begin each fall.
    "Informal" sessions are held year round to help interested persons discern when they are ready to enter to formal sessions in the fall. The RCIA process is for adults who have never been baptized; adults baptized in another faith, and Catholic adults seeking Confirmation or desiring to deepen their understanding of our Catholic faith.

    St. Matthew's offers outreach ministry to any homebound and hospice-bound parishioners

  • What is Confirmation?

    Confirmandi 9th grade and older need to contact Jane or Mary to be confirmed through RCIA/RCIC programs. Contact info bottom center on this page.

    Confirmation is the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit. This is signified in the Rite of Confirmation by an anointing with Chrism, a laying on of hands, and words sealing confirmandi with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

    Confirmation is the sacrament of initiation that completes our baptism process. Once filled with the holy spirit we are ready to assume more responsibility as disciples of christ. The gifts of the Holy Spirit which we receive at baptism are strengthened in Confirmation to help us keep our relationship with god strong and guide us.


    EDGE Youth Ministry

    Confirmation Catechism

    "Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation," whose unity must be safeguarded.

    It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For "by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed." (Catechism 1285)

  • Gabriel's Project

    Gabriel's Project is a Respect Life outreach to all women who choose to keep their babies rather than aborting them.

    This parish-based ministry is specifically designed to work in conjunction with existing crisis pregnancy centers, social services, national hotlines, and other alternatives to abortion.

    Gabriel's Project provides a simple layette and the basics needed to bring a baby home.

    The parish-connect, local location is made to
    be both a welcoming and a distinctively Catholic environment. The layettes, infant clothes and baby necessities are available, without cost, to any mother or family in need, regardless of religious affiliation. Gabriel's Closets are staffed for a few designated hours per week, by volunteer Catholic women. These volunteers welcome visitors and on behalf of the catholic community make the love of Jesus present and tangible. Simple prayer cards and handouts for moms or parents as well as information on Mass times and select church and community support services are available for visitors to pick up.

    Gabriel's Angels provides a personal link between pregnant women in need and the local Catholic faith community.

    Each volunteer is trained to become a mentor to a girl or woman who is facing a crisis prgnancy. She prays for, listens to, and encourages the mother throughout pregnancy. She offers appropriate friendship and assistance on behalf of the parish community and makes the mother aware of church and community services that are available to her. Although the volunteer does not assist the mother with counseling or decision making of any kind, her support does encourage the mother to believe that she can make good choices for both herself and her child. Through the personal Catholic witness of the Angel the woman may also feel drawn to seek Christ in her own life and strengthen her ties with the faith community.

    Communion

    "At the Last Supper, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us." (Catechism 1323)

    Generations of Faith

  • Infant Baptism

    "The practice of infant baptism is an immemorial tradition of the church. There is explicit testimony to this practice from the second century on...from the beginning of the apostolic preaching whole 'households' received baptism." (CCC 1252)

    Step 1: Contact Deacon Kim


    There are 5 main steps to having an infant baptized. The first is to contact Deacon Kim (682-3319 ext 109) to discuss your wishes to prepare for Baptism.

    The Sacraments

    The 7 sacraments for the catholic church are means by which Christ's redemption is made present for all the faithful.
    "the purpose of the sacraments are to sanctify, to build up the body of christ and finally, to give worship to god."..."The church affirms that for believers the sacraments are necessary for salvation." (CCC 1123...1129)

    Baptism

    "Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments.
    Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: 'Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.'" (Catechism 1213)

  • Choosing Godparents, Requirements And Suggestions

    "For all the baptized, children or adults, faith must grow after baptism...For the grace of baptism to unfold, the parents' help is important. So too is the role of the Godfather and godmother, who must be firm believers, able and ready to help the newly baptized child or adult on the road of christian life." (CCC 1254-55)

    Godparents should be chosen with care to help the baptized grow in the Catholic faith. To be admitted to the role of godparent or sponsor a person must meet the following requirements :

    1.) Exhibit a genuine concern for the spiritual welfare of the person being baptized.
    "Parents above others are obliged to form their children in the faith and practice of the christian life by word and example - godparents are bound by an equivalent obligation." (CIC 774B)

    2.) Be at least 17 years of age.

    3.) Be a catholic who has been confirmed and is receiving the sacrament of holy eucharist and leads a life in harmony with the faith and role to be undertaken.

    4.) A baptized person who belongs to a non-catholic community may not be admitted except as a christian witness and only then with a catholic meeting sponsor who meets all requirements.

    5.) When choosing godparents for your child you might want to think about the proximity of the sponsors to the child being baptized. Can they establish a relationship - is that important to you? Do they practice their faith in a visible, tangible way? Do they witness their faith openly to others?

  • Marriage as a Sacrament

    Sacramental Marriage is a perpetual and exclusive bond between a baptized man and woman through which the two are strengthened and consecrated for their sacramental duties and responsibilities as husband and wife.

    God established the marital bond in such a way that once consummated, can only be dissolved by God, through the death of one party. The two, man and woman, male and female, have become 'one flesh' and that union, is sacred for life.



    Starting Marriage Prep

    Marriage Enrichment

    Annulments

    Holy Matrimony Information

    Marriage Preparation in the Diocese of Cheyenne (Wyoming): takes 6 months to a year to complete.

    It is initiated at the parish level. If prior marriages exist for either of the parties, the process can take longer since those prior relationships must be addressed through the annulment process before marriage preparation can begin.

    Marriage Preparation : To assist the two of you in your endeavor to prepare for marriage we offer the following 5 steps :


    1.) Prenuptial Interview/FOCCUS
    2.) Life Skills for Joy Filled Marriage
    3.) God's Plan for Joy Filled Marriage
    4.) Natural Family Planning
    5.) Planning actual ceremony

    Matrimony Catechism

    "The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring.

    this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament." (Catechism 1601)



  • Step 1: Prenuptial Interview and FOCCUS Inventory

    The first step to prepare for marriage is to call Fr. Cliff, Fr. Reymond or Deacon Kim at St. Matthew's 307-682-3319 to begin

    Plan on 2 hours to complete the initial interview and to complete the FOCCUS inventory. FOCCUS stands for 'Facilitating Open Couple Communication, Understanding, and Study'.

    This instrument is not a test. It is a comparative survey that is used to discover areas of agreement and disagreement in your relationship; areas where additional dialogue or discussion is warranted. You will be assisted in that process by the priest, deacon or a mentor couple who will facilitate 6-8 sessions focusing on Life Skills for marriage and other specific topics from the FOCCUS inventory

    Back To Marriage Info

    Continue On to Step 2

    Some other documents and info are needed during the prenuptial interview, please be prepared to discuss or provide the following :

    The interview process is also used to determine if a person is 'free to marry', if there are prior marriages the priest or deacon will be asking about those relationships and will assist in starting the annulment process if necessary. It will also be at this meeting that you begin to plan for and to schedule your wedding day.

    Freedom to Marry Testimonies: Statements from your parents or other close relatives concerning your marital status and freedom to marry. Dispensations, Permissions, and other documents: If they are necessary, the priest, deacon, or pastoral minister will be happy to explain the reason these documents are essential and will help collect them.

    Proof of Confirmation: Please be prepared to provide proof of baptism and confirmation (usually with a current Baptismal Certificate). Notations (1st communion and Confirmation) are usually found on the back of the certificate.


  • Step 2: Life Skills For A Joy Filled Marriage

    In these 6-8 sessions, you will learn practical life skills to help build the foundation for a successful marriage.
    These sessions are facilitated by the priest, deacon or a mentor couple. Topics covered are Communication, Conflict Resolution, Decision Making, Finances, Sacramental Commitment, Sexuality, Parenting, Extended Family Issues, Religion and Spirituality.

    Back To Marriage Info

    Step 3: God's Plan For A Joy Filled Marriage

    Attend a retreat/workshop titled God's Plan for a Joy-filled Marriage.

    It will begin on Friday evening and continue through Saturday with a blessing of engaged couples at the Saturday evening Mass. This workshop is offered in September and March of each year (other opportunities are available throughout the state). The first portion of the program is based on John Paul II's Theology of the Body.

    It is a comprehensive view on what the Catholic Church teaches about sexuality and marriage. Married couples facilitate this outstanding DVD program that provides an opportunity for questions and answers. The last session of the day introduces couples to the beauty and sanctity of Natural Family Planning.

    Step 4: Natural Family Planning

    NFP is a critically important part of your marriage preparation. It is a healthy and effective way to plan for children.

    NFP builds excellent communication skills between couples, naturally drawing you closer together. Statistics prove that those marriage using NFP are much more likely to last!

    Step 5: Planning Your Wedding

    Planning for the actual wedding ceremony and the specific date for the wedding will vary.

    The priest or deacon, parish music director and the couple will work together to finalize details. Together for Life by Joseph M. Champlin is a resource used for planning wedding liturgies : Visit TogetherForLife

  • Annulments Within the Catholic Faith

    Once we are sacramentaly married we are not free to marry someone else regardless of whether we have received a civil divorce or not.

    An annulment is not the same as a civil divorce. An annulment is a declaration by the Catholic Church that after careful investigation, flaws were discovered in the relationship that prevented it from becoming a marriage. The Church knows that there are legitimate reasons why a wedding may not have led to a valid marriage and wants to assist those whose prior marriage has ended in divorce. We want to investigate with you the possibility of getting re-married in the Church. If, through the annulment investigation, the Church comes to moral certitude that a valid marriage did not occur, then both parties may be free to marry someone else.



    Back To Marriage Info

    Marriages between two non-Catholics are also presumed valid if neither partner has been married before.

    Therefore, the Church requires an annulment of those marriages as well before a person is free to marry in the Catholic Church. Please contact Fr. Cliff, Dn. Kim or Fr. Reymond for more information regarding annulments.

    The main types of annulments are :
    Lack of Form Cases, Favor of Faith Cases, Ligamen or Prior Marriage Cases, and Formal Cases.
    Depending on circumstances, annulments can take 1-18 months.

  • Our Mission

    The impact of a vital ministry of music is of great value to the people of God. The strength and spirit of worship is greatly enhanced by the , passion, and skill of the church musicians.

    Our role is to lead the congregation in song during "the designated moments" of the Mass, which are the following: the Gloria, the Responsorial Psalm, the Alleluia, the Memorial Acclimation, the Amen, and the Lamb of God. We minster to the congregation by seeking to provide appropriate music for prayer, reflection, and meditation throughout our mass celebration.

    These musical offerings draw from the Church's rich musical heritage and ministers of music are encouraged by the Church to develop their s in the services of the liturgy.

    Music Ministry

    Music is offered not as mere entertainment or performances, but as a form of prayer which hopefully can move others to pray as well.

  • When Discerning Vocations

    Discerning your vocatiosn is a call that requires much reflection and prayer to receive correctly. Here are a few pointers from our own Sister Carol :

    1. Religious women or men who vow to live the evangelical counselsdo so in order to affirm, intensify and express their baptismal life according to a deep insight into Gospel living.

    2. When I consciously try to listen, do I hear the Lord calling me?
    a. Does it have the freshness and freedom of the Gospel; to live a life of consecrated calling through the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience?

    3. Am I hearing the prophetic voice today?
    a. 'Our vocations, our lives begin and end in the desire for God" Sr. Pat Farrell OSF

  • Consecrated Religious Life

    "From the very beginning of the Church there were men and women who set out to follow Christ with greater liberty, and to imitate him more closely, by practicing the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience."(CCC918).

    "This state of consecrated life, as a religious brother or sister, is one way of experiencing a "more intimate" consecration, rooted in Baptism and dedicated totally to God. In the consecrated life, Christ's faithful, moved by the Holy Spirit, propose to follow Christ more nearly, to give themselves to God who is loved above all and, pursuing the perfection of charity in the service of the Kingdom." (CCC 916)

    "As with other forms of consecrated life," the order of virgins establishes the woman living in the world (or the nun) in prayer, penance, service of her brethren, and apostolic activity, according to the state of life and spiritual gifts given to her." (CCC924)

    Single Life

    "We must also remember the great number of single persons who… serve God and neighbor in exemplary fashion. The doors of homes, the "domestic churches," and of the great family which is the Church must be open to all of them. "No one is without a family in this world: the Church is a home and family for everyone, especially those who 'labor and are heavy laden." (CCC1658)

    "A single person …should cultivate [chastity] in the way that is suited to their state of life. Some profess virginity or consecrated celibacy which enables them to give themselves to God alone with an undivided heart in a remarkable manner. Others live in the way prescribed for all by the moral law, whether they are married or single." Married people are called to live conjugal chastity; others practice chastity in continence." (CCC2349)
