Adult Religious Education (RCIA)
The RCIA program will begin in late September 2019 at the Arcade worship site parish hall. Please contact us to register.
More info about RCIA:
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a journey to a deeper experience of God’s love manifested through the teaching and treasures of the Catholic Faith.
We welcome adults who want to learn more about the Catholic faith:
- Validly baptized adults who have not received the Sacraments of Holy Eucharist, Reconciliation or Confirmation in the Catholic Church
- Those never baptized, or baptized in another faith, who are interested in learning about the Catholic Faith and possibly becoming a fully initiated Catholic
We usually meet on Thursday evenings. There is no pressure or obligation; it is a time to inquire. We would love to have you join us and encourage you to give us the name of anyone you know who may be interested.
The RCIA is a journey of faith with other individuals who are inquiring about the faith or with other baptized Catholics who have not yet received the sacraments of initiation.
If you, or anyone that you know, is interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, please contact Fr. Joe at the parish.
