R.C.I.A

The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) program began on September 15 and runs through the Easter season.  It is geared to those who would like to enter the Catholic Church and receive the Sacraments of God.  If you know of someone who might be interested – invite them to come.  This is also a great opportunity for those who have been Catholics their whole lives but would like an in-depth teaching as to WHY we believe what we believe not just what we believe.  All parishioners are asked to prayerfully consider joining the RCIA program to help deepen their faith in the Lord Jesus.  To register – kindly call the parish office or speak to Fr. Rico directly and for more information check out our “Becoming Catholic” page here
