RCIA 2017-2018

 

The Rite of the Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the conversion process by which non-baptized adults (catechumens) and baptized Christians (candidates) are fully initiated into the Catholic Church.  RCIA is an opportunity for people to learn about the doctrine of the Catholic faith and enter into full communion with the Catholic Church.  RCIA is for adults who are interested in becoming fully initiated into the Catholic Church and for those baptized Catholics who have not received the Eucharist (First Communion) and/or Confirmation.  RCIA is also for any baptized Christian who is seeking full communion with the Catholic Church.  To become Catholic, baptized Christians make a Profession of Faith in the Catholic Church and celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation and the Eucharist.  RCIA is also for anyone who is not baptized and would like to become Catholic.  We will be offering RCIA classes here at St. Joseph’s beginning in December and encourage anyone who is not in full communion with the Catholic Church to attend.  If you would like to register or would like more information about this program please contact Laura at 427-9239 or stop by her office after mass.  Thank you.
