The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which people become members of the Roman Catholic Church. The
process is concerned with the total formation of the person into believing with the Church community (doctrinal formation), living with
the Church community (practical formation), praying with the Church community (liturgical formation), and serving with the Church
community (apostolic formation). This gradual development culminates in the celebration of the initiation sacraments of baptism, confirmation,
and the Eucharist at Easter time.
If you or anyone you know is interested in the Catholic Faith, please have them contact Fr. Clark or Deacon Rick Moser. 2013 Inquiry Classes
begin on Thursday, September 26, at 6:30 p.m. in the Parish Center. RCIA Classes will start after Inquiry Classes end.
If your child or children have been baptized but have not received First Penance or First Eucharist, and they are in the fourth grade or higher,
they should be enrolled in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC) in order to receive those sacraments. Please contact Fr. Clark
or Deacon Rick Moser for more information. Classes will begin in the fall.
