Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (and Teens)
“To convert somebody go and take them by the hand and guide them.” ~ St. Thomas Aquinas
For Adults (17 yrs. old and over) who have not been baptized and are interested in exploring the Catholic faith, beliefs and practices are invited to participate in the RCIA program.
This is a process of prayer, reflection and study spread overs several months (Oct.-May), during which the inquirer participates in Catholic life and worship. The focus of the process is Christian Conversion, a change of heart in which the individual turns toward God and away from whatever is in the way of living a full Christian life.
For Teens – Do you know a teen who has not received all their Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, First Eucharist, Confirmation)? Has a teen you know starting asking questions about the Catholic faith?
Teen RCIA is for teens 13 – 16 yrs of age, who have not been baptized and who may be interested in joining the Roman Catholic faith. Offering teens the time and environment to be formed in the teachings and practices of Catholicism. Preparation for full communion into the Catholic Church through the Sacraments.
