A dynamic one-year program for adults seeking to enter full communion with the Catholic Church
“RCIA” stands for the “Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.” This is the process for people seeking initiation into the Catholic Church who have not yet been baptized, who have not had sufficient instruction and their First Eucharist, or practicing Christians from other denominations who have been baptized and now wish to become Catholic Christians. You may also attend the RCIA classes if you just want to know more about your Catholic faith.
Through a process involving several stages, adults prepare for the reception of these sacraments at the Easter Vigil. These stages include the pre-catechumenate, when a person discerns whether he wishes to become a Catholic; the catechumenate, when a person learns about Catholic Christianity and how Catholics are called to live; the purification and enlightenment, when prayers are offered for those preparing for the sacraments; and a period of continual growth in the Catholic faith.
Sundays, 8:00-10:15 AM
