The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process by which adults are initiated into the Catholic community. Adults who have never been baptized, adults baptized in other Christian faiths and who desire to explore Catholicism, and adults baptized into the Catholic faith but not reared in Catholic faith understanding or practice, are invited to explore this process. The First RCIA class for the current year is September 27th at 7 p.m. in the Rectory. Subsequent meetings are every Tuesday.
The Church has always had a process of discernment, listening, and learning for those considering becoming Catholic. This process is a journey of faith that we will walk with you. What we call this journey is Christian Initiation, or more specifically, RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). Participants in RCIA receive the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation) at the Easter Vigil each year. In doing so, they share in the fullness of the life of the Church, the Body of Christ.
If you are interested in hearing more about what the Catholic Church offers, please call the parish office (216.521.0184) or contact Father Kevin.
RCIC, or Rite of Christian Initiation for Children, is open to all children ages 6 and older, unbaptized or baptized. RCIC is designed to educate children in the Catholic faith and prepare them for the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil. Whether your family is just entering the Church, returning to the practice of the Catholic faith, or have delayed the sacraments for your child, please contact Fr. Kevin for more information.
