Every year thousands of adults are welcomed into the Roman Catholic Community through the RCIA process.
To inquire about RCIA at St. Patrick’s, please contact email@example.com
- Are you seeking meaning in your life?
- Are you un-baptized but wish to learn more about Jesus Christ?
- Are you a baptized Christian who wishes to learn more about the Roman Catholic Church?
- Are you a Roman Catholic who has not completed his or her sacramental initiation?
- Do you feel God inviting you into (a deeper) relationship with Him?
Then maybe the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the place for you.
The RCIA is a sacramental journey
A process leading to initiation into the Roman Catholic Church. It is also a communal process and involves a number of stages (Precatechumenate; Catechumenate; Enlightenment and Purification; Mystagogy) punctuated by liturgical rites (Rite of Acceptance, Rite of Election; Celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation). The process is about developing (or deepening) a relationship over time with both God and the Catholic faith community. The RCIA process follows the ancient practice of the Early Church and was restored by the Second Vatican Council as the normative way to prepare adults for baptism.
Maria Vaillancourt, coordinator of the program and her team, provide religious instruction, which also involves sacramental preparation for First Communion and Confirmation, to children in Levels 1 to 6 at the weekend masses. For further information, please contact Maria at 514-866-7379 or firstname.lastname@example.org
