Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) Ministry
R.C.I.A. is the process by which adults inquire about the Catholic Church. Weekly meetings consist of activities designed to introduce people to St. Anthony’s parish, classes about basic Catholic beliefs, and opportunities to grow closer to God through liturgy, community and prayer.
Although R.C.I.A. is intended for people who wish to become Catholic, anyone interested in learning more about the Church is welcome, and there is no obligation for any participant to join the Church.
St. Anthony regular R.C.I.A. begins in the fall, with candidates joining the Church at Easter.
There will be an informational on Wednesday, September 19 at 6:30PM in the Lower Church. At this meeting we will discuss the process, hand out the schedule of sessions, answer questions, and complete registration for those interested.
The regular sessions will begin Wednesday, September 27th, and will run from 6:30PM until 8PM every Wednesday, with a few exceptions, through April 25, 2017. Also, if participants have been baptized, they will need a copy of their baptismal certificate.
