Adult Sacrament Preparation - RCIA

The RCIA program (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) invites adults to explore the Catholic faith. Bases on a universal process offered in almost every parish, the RCIA program is offered to adults who are interested in learning more about the Catholic Church. The weekly sessions include time for teaching the basics of Catholicism. We cover topics such as:

The mass
The mass Catholic approaches to the Bible
The seven sacraments (baptism, eucharist, confirmation, reconciliation, anointing of the sick, marriage, and holy orders)
The liturgical seasons (Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, Ordinary Time)
Saints
Role of Mary

Besides learning about the Catholic faith, persons engage in prayer, scripture reflection, and faith sharing. The process is tailored to the needs of each individual and the group.
