RCIA

 

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, the pastoral process for initiation new members into the Church, is ministering to great numbers of seekers. The Church is leading them to knowledge of the truths of faith, to the celebration of the Seven Sacraments, to commitment to the moral life-including the forming of a social conscience-and to the practice of prayer, and at the same time, the Church responds to their desire for community.

RCIA or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a

spiritual journey into the Catholic faith. It is an

exploration of Catholic teachings, traditions, and

practices. Participants attend weekly sessions which

begin in September. It is a process whereby adults

become fully participating members of the Church through a series of rites, which

concludes after the Easter Vigil service in the spring. RCIA is for those who:

1.) have not been baptized;
2.) have been baptized in another faith and now wish 
      to join the Catholic church; or
3.) have been baptized in the Catholic faith but have 
      not received the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.

For more information, contact

Deacon Tom Miller through the Parish Office. 

 

Children over 7 years old who have not received the

 Sacrament of Baptism are invited to participate in a similar process known

as Rite of Christian Initiation Adapted to Children. For more information,

contact the Religious Education Office at 760.868.4342, Ext. 221.
