The Ministry of R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the process of catechesis and formation for the following individuals:
Those individuals, ages seven and older who have never been Baptized. These folks are known as “Catechumens”. For more information about this part of our R.C.I.A. program refer to our web page link entitled “Family-based Religious Education“.
Those brothers and sisters who have been previously Baptized in another Christian faith but are now looking to come into full communion with the Catholic church. These folks are known as “Candidates”.
This ministry prepares those enrolled for initiation into the Catholic Faith through weekly classes focusing on the basics of the faith, prayer, Scripture, and spirituality. All classes are open to any interested parishioners.
Classes for R..CI.A. begin in August each year and participants attend one of the weekly sessions held either on Tuesday at 7:00pm or Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
