Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
SS John and Paul Parish will start our RCIA process in October. RCIA is the process in which someone enters the Catholic Church.
The RCIA is a joyful and spiritual process; it is absolutely not demanding nor is it stressful. You go at your own speed and move on only when you feel you are ready. The other steps are facilitated by fellow parishioners who act as catechists (teachers), sponsors at Confirmation, and perhaps Godparents at Baptism.
The RCIA is open to all:
· Baptized Christians of other traditions.
· Unbaptized people.
· Baptized Catholics who want to receive the rest of the Sacraments of Initiation: Holy Communion and Confirmation as well as Reconciliation and Matrimony.
Above all, this is a Total Parish process. Everyone is involved either working on the RCIA team or praying with you and for you at Mass and finally, celebrating with you when you are brought into full communion with the Church at the Easter Vigil.
If you know of someone who is interested in inquiring about entering the Church or has sacramental issues that need to be resolved, please contact the Religious Education office (834-4597) or send an email to email@example.com.
