Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) Are you considering becoming Catholic?
Are you a Catholic interested in being Confirmed?
Are you a Confirmed Catholic who is ready to explore your faith anew?
Each year men and women embark on an exploration of the Catholic faith. Some are deciding if they are called to the Catholic Church; others have been Catholic all their lives and are now interested in discovering what this really means. Together we witness to the fact that our search is a lifelong journey, a journey on which we make the most progress when we walk it with others and with intention.
Tuesday Evenings ~ ~ ~ September through Easter ~ ~ ~ 6:30—8:00 p.m.
St. James Church—Connolly Hall (Church Basement)
If you are a Confirmed Catholic, consider joining RCIA and renewing your Confirmation at Pentecost. You can also serve as a sponsor of candidates or assist with hospitality for the weekly meetings. You will derive a special satisfaction from sharing the RCIA candidates’ journey in faith.
