RCIA

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

RCIA helps adults and young adults (age 18 and older) learn about the Catholic Faith and prepare them for the initiation sacraments that are typically celebrated at the Easter Vigil Mass which will be on April 20 this coming spring (2019). Candidates and their sponsors meet together on most Tuesday evenings from the fall through Easter, plus two sessions after Easter. Our normal meeting times are on Tuesdays, 7:00-8:45 PM in the Dining Room. We started on Sept. 25 and are happy to add more new people over the next several weeks. Alternate times are possible for those who cannot meet on Tuesday evenings.
 
Participants/Candidates include: 
  • Those who are not yet baptized preparing to celebrate Baptism, Confirmation and First Eucharist
  • Those baptized in another Christian denomination preparing to become Catholic with celebrating Confirmation and First Eucharist
  • Plus those who were baptized Catholic, but not yet confirmed, preparing to celebrate their Confirmation, and perhaps First Eucharist.
We also are looking for Parish Sponsors to participate in RCIA as a support to those who are preparing for initiation sacraments.
