Rite of Christian Initiation

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, commonly known as RCIA, is an opportunity for Catholics and non-Catholics to explore the Catholic Faith through Scripture. This evangelization program also reaches out to Adult Catholics who need preparation for Confirmation and/or Holy Communion or who are interested in enriching their faith.

Team members assist with the program by supporting candidates in their faith journey and acting as sponsors. New team members are always welcome to help with this enriching experience.

RCIA meets Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. in the school library beginning Tuesday, August 30, 2016. Other events are scheduled throughout the year.

All RCIA volunteers are acting in the name of and representing the church. Therefore, all volunteers must participate in the Protecting God’s Childrenprogram and obtain the necessary clearances.

I really enjoyed my RCIA class.  I learned so much about the Church and made new friends with my classmates and Sister Mary Elizabeth. My Catholic husband, who was my sponsor, appreciated the fellowship of the group and learned a lot that he had missed  when in CCD as a child.
