RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
(Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
Adults interested in finding out more about the Catholic Faith and/or becoming a Roman Catholic are invited to contact Francesca at the parish office about our RCIA program. This program is also available for those Catholics who would like to complete their sacramental preparation.
Classes begin in September and meet on Sunday mornings from 9-11 a.m.
In this program an effective presentation of the core Gospel message will be presented with the goal to offer people an initial conversion or re-version to the person of Jesus Christ.
Inquiries and faith are shared as the Bible, prayers, and teachings of the Church are explored together. Individuals ready to join the Church will then officially become Catechumens. Those already baptized in another Christian faith will become Candidates as they seek full reception into the Catholic Church. Generally this takes place at the Easter Vigil.
As Lent begins, they will become members of the Elect as they prepare, with the help of their sponsors, for the celebration of Baptism and/or Confirmation and the reception of Holy Communion during the Easter Vigil Mass.
