RCIA

To nurture a vibrant, progressive and spirit-filled parish family, committed to the call of the Gospel.

“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”
-St Augustine, Confessions

Is there more to life? Are you yearning to live a meaningful and fulfilling life?
In the Catholic Faith, we encounter the everlasting love of a Triune God who meets us daily in the Eucharist. Experience the love and grace of a personal God through the sacraments of the Catholic Church and lean on the maternal embrace of Mary our Mother who daily intercedes on our behalf. Enter deep into the Catholic Faith in all its richness, history, beauty, goodness, and Truth. Take a leap of faith, sign up for the RCIA program and let the Lord surprise you.

“One of the most fundamental problems in the spiritual order is that we sense within ourselves the hunger for God, but we attempt to satisfy it with some created good that is less than God. Thomas Aquinas said that the four typical substitutes for God are wealth, pleasure, power, and honor. Sensing the void within, we attempt to fill it up with some combination of these four things, but only by emptying out the self in love can we make the space for God to fill us.”
– Bishop Robert Barron

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the process through which interested adults are gradually introduced to the Roman Catholic faith and way of life.
The RCIA Ministry’s mission is to evangelize to the inquirers and help in the faith formation of the catechumens, who will later become the elects. Baptized Christians who are non-Catholics are welcome to journey the same way together with the inquirers, until their baptism and confirmation on Holy Saturday.

The RCIA ministry is committed to further deepening the neophytes’ knowledge of the Catholic faith even after baptism. The process of integration into the faith is broken into four periods: evangelization, catechumenate, purification and mystagogy. Along this journey, the elects will have to choose a godparent who will continue to aid them in spiritual formation. The RCIA program is not only where Catholic Doctrine is imparted, but where you will find a loving and dedicated community who will support you throughout this journey. Come and grow in your knowledge of the Catholic faith and have your burning questions answered in a safe space.

If you have a stirring in your heart to explore the Catholic faith or desire to rediscover and renew your walk with the Lord, take that first step and join us in our upcoming program this June 6, 2019. Wherever you are in your journey, we welcome you here.
