R.C.I.A. - Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Contacts: Fr. Nicholas Case

We offer for adults (post high school years) who wish to enter the Catholic Church or to prepare for the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Communion. The process is known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.).

R.C.I.A. is a faith discernment process of gatherings, discussions, social activities and rituals leading to the reception of the Sacraments of Initiation for people seeking to become Catholic Christians. If you are thinking of becoming a Catholic, this is the place for you!

The initiation rites also strive to rekindle the faith of the whole parish, to communicate and clarify our Catholic tradition, and to build our identity as a community united by faith in Jesus Christ.

The program needs team members who are the companions accompanying participants on their journey toward full communion with the Church. In our nine month program, we are always seeking warm and welcoming Catholics alive in their faith to join our team of parishioners. We are called to offer prayer leadership, hospitality, prayer support, sponsorship, and much more. In short, we need you, if you are a confirmed and active Catholic Christian.

Our initiation program begins with an interview with Fr. Toan, so you are welcome to contact him for further information. The actual program begins in September and runs through Easter Sunday.
