RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Interested in Becoming Catholic?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is an enriching and rewarding experience during which Catholics can witness to and share their faith with those seeking to understand Catholicism or who have decided to embrace the Catholic faith.  The RCIA team meets with individuals who want to explore Catholicism and what it means.  A different facet of the Catholic faith is presented each week by a different team leader way.  The process culminates with the Easter Vigil Liturgy when the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist are received.

 

ARE YOU SOMEONE WHO…

  • Has expressed an interest in becoming Catholic?
  • Needs all Catholic Christian Sacraments - Baptism, Eucharist, & Confirmation?
  • Was baptized as a Christian, but has not celebrated the Sacraments of Eucharist & Confirmation? 

If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, please contact the rectory for more information about RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). We offer an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn more about our faith. Sessions focus on the teachings and experience of Church and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist during the Easter season. There are separate sessions for children or youth. You are welcome to participate in the process with your questions, your insights and your faith story in a warm accepting setting.

 

Please call the parish rectory for more information.
