RCIA

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Thinking about a deeper connection with the Divine, while Becoming a Catholic Christian?  Are you interest in the Mystery of Catholic faith?  The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) may be for you.

What is RCIA?
The RCIA is a process of discernment and formation in which men and women are guided and cared for as they deepen their faith and, if they so choos, are gradually initiated into the Roman Catholic community, a community centered on Jesus Christ and His mission today.

The RCIA process is a series of carefully planned stages of personal growth, marked by liturgical rites in the presence of the whole community, in which those who are discerning becoming new Catholics embark on and join us in a continuing and deepening conversion into this companionship of faith and discipleship.

If you are interested in becoming Roman Catholic or learning more about the Catholic faiith, please contact me and fill out an application as soon as possible for Gonzaga's six-month RCIA program (from September to Easter) to deepen your union with the Divine, and to prepare for the reception of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.  Anyone who would like to refresh or re-form their knowlege or learn more about the faith is also welcome.

Time, date, and location
We begin Sunday, Sept 24th, and meet most sundays from 11:00am to 1pm.  There are also a couple of afternoons of reflection and the whole process peaks with Holy Week, which is March 23 to April 1st, 2018.
