RCIA

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
Interested in RCIA? 

RCIA helps adults and young adults (age 14 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 3 next spring (2021). Candidates and their sponsors meet together on most Tuesday evenings from the fall through Easter, plus two sessions after Easter. Our main group meets on Tuesdays, 7:00-8:45 PM sometimes in the Dining Room and other times by Zoom. When "in person" all wear masks and are safely spaced. We also have a group that meets at 7:00 PM on Wednesday evenings by all Zoom.
 
If you have questions or interest in joining RCIA, please contact Mike Vievering ASAP

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.
 
More Parish Sponsors are welcome to participate in RCIA as a support to those who are preparing for initiation sacraments. Confirmed, practicing Catholics are eligible.
