"Each year on Holy Saturday during the Easter Vigil, thousands are baptized into the Catholic Church in the United States. Parishes welcome these new Catholics through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
Anyone considering joining the Catholic Church is invited to join the RCIA!
The RCIA process can be for:
- Unbaptized Adults
- Members of other Christian Communities*
- Adults who are members of the Church who never learned the faith nor received the Sacraments of Initiation.*
*The full RCIA process is not required for already baptized Christians. Each person's path to the Church is individually discerned with the parish staff.
-The RCIA process includes rituals, bi-weekly sessions, celebrations, and fellowship.
-RCIA is a journey toward Christ, a journey to deeper faith, and a journey to discover Christ’s Church.
-Bi-Weekly sessions provide introductions to most of the major teachings of the Church essentially enabling free and conscious entrance into the Church.
RCIA runs nearly year round, and you can join at almost any time!
RCIA members are asked to attend Wednesday evenings at 6:30 a couple times a month.
RCIA members are also asked to attend Sunday Mass with the parish community.
There are some rituals and activities that are at other times, but they are scheduled early.
Sessions are scheduled to avoid major holidays.
Class sessions are held in the Parish Center in Activity Room II
(Across the lot from the side entrance of the Church).
Rituals and celebrations are held in the Cathedral Church Building.
