RCIA

 

 

The Rite of Christian initiation is designed for adults and children, over the age of 7, who consciously and freely seek to be baptized and be received fully into the faith.  RCIA is also for people who have already received the Sacrament of Baptism, be it Catholic or in any other faith tradition, but now seek full communion into the Catholic church. 

This journey is on-going!  We do NOT have a PROGRAM that starts in September and ends at the Easter Vigil.  Each person or family can begin the process at any point during the Liturgical Year.  We respect that each person is unique and comes to God in different ways, at different times and with different questions or concerns.  We work closely with each Catechumen or Candidate (already Baptized) to ensure that they are prepared well each step along the way. 

This journey of faith is NOT A PROGRAM ABOUT LEARNING DOCTRINE OR CATCHING UP ON ALL YOU DON'T KNOW!  This journey is a journey of LOVE - a conversion of heart, a falling in deeper love with Jesus! 

If you are curious about what it means to be Catholic and would like to learn more or if you are ready to start the journey now, contact Vici Armsby, Pastoral Associate for Faith Formation at 274-6269 to set up an appointment.

Are you ready to come to the water of Baptism?  Enjoy this wonderful uplifting song by Tenth Avenue North - Love is Here!  We think it speaks to the journey you are about to embark on!  Blessings to you!
