Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults & Adapted for Children and Teens

All Are Welcome

What if....

  • 'I am unbaptized but want to grow spiritually in my life.'
  • 'I have a different faith background but want to learn what Catholics believe and why.'
  • 'I am a baptized Catholic but never made my First Holy Communion and/or Confirmation.'   

.....we would love to assist you in your faith journey through an exciting and deeply enriching process in the Catholic Church called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.).

RCIA is for those who are seeking a better relationship with God, who are looking for more information about Catholic Christianity, or who are seeking to grow in their spiritual or Sacramental life.  The RCIA process welcomes the unbaptized person to the family of Jesus Christ.  Sessions are informal and comfortable opportunities to explore the Catholic faith with presentations, discussions, and fellowship.  Explore the faith without obligation.  We meet most Sunday mornings during the school year from 9:00-10:30 in Bishop Quinn Hall behind the school.  During the summer we take a few weeks off then we offer a summer series to continue faith formation.  Watch the bulletin for the Symbolon series which will start at the end of June, on Sundays after the 8 am Mass in the dining room behind the church.
