R.C.I.A.: What is that? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process by which adults learn about the Catholic Church, have the opportunity to become a full member of the Church, and continue to explore their personal faith journey.
Our sessions consist of presentations, discussions, sharing, learning and deepening of faith. We meet with staff members and volunteer parishioners who will assist you in discovering and answering your questions about the Catholic Faith. Then, if you feel you are ready, you will be welcomed into Full Communion with the Church at the Easter Vigil through the sacraments of Baptism (if needed), Eucharist and Confirmation.
We gather Wednesday evenings beginning in the fall and then at the beginning of the 6 weeks of Lent we begin dismissals at the 11 a.m. Mass. There are a few Rites to be celebrated in that time frame — the full schedule is available here.
We would like to extend an invitation to all adults who might be interested in becoming a full member of the Catholic Church to join us at our first meeting this fall where we will help to answer any questions you may have about The Rite of Christian initation of Adults .
If you have any questions please call or email me.
