Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
R. C. I. A. is an ongoing process of formation for adults: those seeking to become baptized members of St. Isidore Parish. It also includes opportunities for adults seeking full communion in the Catholic Church, adults seeking the sacrament of confirmation. We encourage all who are interested to speak with Deacon Charlie Cornell or contact the parish secretary.
 
Marriage
Pre-register at least six months in advance. An essential component of marriage preparation here at St. Isidore's is the group program for engaged couples. It looks beyond the marriage ceremony to married life which is being entered at the time of the wedding. We especially recommend the Engaged Encounter Weekend at the Marist House in Framingham for those who can invest the time. We also recommend the program at the Espousal Center in Waltham. Couples may call directly to inquire and/or to register

First First Eucharist Preparation
The children prepare over a two year period through the Generations of Faith program. In the second year, usually the second grade, the parents participate in periodic morning or evening sessions. For more details contact Carmen Giombetti (cpg@seoh.org)
 
Confirmation Preparation
High school students preparing for confirmation participate in a two year process on Sunday evenings. For more information, contact Jim Flanagan(jim@seoh.org). Adults seeking confirmation are welcome to the RCIA track - contact Deacon Charlie Cornell
