RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

What is RCIA?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process through which those who wish to join the Catholic faith community are welcomed and introduced to the beliefs and practices of the Church. For those not yet baptized, the process leads to the reception of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. Those who have been previously baptized in another Christian tradition are invited to participate fully in the Church through the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.

If you're curious about the Catholic faith or you've even thought about becoming a Catholic, our Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) program is just for you. Adults from all faith traditions, or no religious background at all, are welcome to participate in our 17-week program of instruction designed especially for the needs and lifestyles of busy people. The program focuses on four essential areas: what the Church teaches (what you must believe); how the Church teaches; the Bible; and spirituality. 

St. Ignatius' learner-centered program is unique for a number of reasons. It is a structured, instructional and interactive program that is run twice a year. One begins in mid-Summer and ends on the feast of Christ the King (last Sunday of November). The other begins in December and ends at the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday. Our RCIA teams are dedicated to meeting the needs of the individual participant. They are backed-up by a clergy that's involved and caring. 

If you are interested, Please contact Mrs Pat Crosslin Or Chris Shafer  (Dir. of RCIA) at 615 367 0085 for more information.
