RCIC - RCIT - RCIA Programs

By fostering and exercising a tender and strong concern for every child that comes into this world, the Church fulfills a fundamental mission: for she is called upon to reveal and put forward anew in history the example and the commandment of Christ the Lord, who placed the child at the heart of the Kingdom of God: “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.
— Saint John Paul II

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) includes prayer and instruction for those who desire to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church.

It is also for those Catholics who wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Weekly sessions are on Sundaymornings from 8:45 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. Rites will take place on Sundays at the 10:30 am Mass with "Breaking Open the Word" following Mass in the Community Center.

Classes are held September through April.  Watch the bulletin for an information meeting in August.  

The reception of the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist take place at the Easter Vigil. For those who are baptized Catholics, the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist will take place at the Confirmation celebration during the Easter season.
