Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
RCIA is the result off the Second Vatican Council's attempt to restore to practice the rites and procedures known in the early Church. It is a procedure wherein initiates, those wishing to enter the Catholic Church or to obtain missing sacraments, go through a training and learning process. RCIA is also for practicing Catholics who would like to learn more about their faith.
Our gatherings are on the first and third Tuesdays of the month in Classroom 10 at 7:00 pm. Anyone is welcome to join at any time.
RCIA is open to candidates all year round. As a team, we meet in a non-threatening, non-pressured environment. RCIA provides a forum for shared spititual growth and exploration of Catholic traditions through scripture, sacraments, church teachings, and commuity outreach.
