RCIA

"I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life." John 14

RCIA, which stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process through which men and women enter the Catholic Church. It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass. Participants in the RCIA are known as catechumens. They undergo a process of conversion as they study the Gospel, profess faith in Jesus and the Catholic Church, and receive the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Holy Eucharist. The RCIA process follows the ancient practice of the Church and was restored by the Second Vatican Council as the normal way adults prepare for baptism.

Our Fall RCIA Course begins Thursday August 31st at 7:00pm in the parish Hall.

Rich Sealy coordinates the RCIA program and can be reached via email or through the parish office.
