R.C.I.A./Adult Faith Formation

 
 

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is a process of adult faith formation for anyone interested in the Roman Catholic tradition. Immediate preparation for the sacrament of Baptism, Eucharistic, and/or Confirmation is art of the program. This year we are offering parish wide opportunities for everyone to take advantage of the spiritual and educational session.

Journey with Us!

Through the process of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or RCIA, we explore all these questions and discover the keys to the kingdom. RCIA is a restoration of the ancient practice of initiation into the Church.  Through a process of discernment, spiritual development and ritualizing stages of conversion, you are guided to sacramental initiation. These Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist which are celebrated at the Easter Vigil open your hearts and empower you to lives of service, charity and justice as witnesses to our mission of OPUS CHRISTI, Christ’s work. RCIA is not a program but a sacramental process. RCIA reflects a sacramental attitude that is at the heart of all Christian living: CONVERSION, turning your heart to God.

We invite you to be our companion on the journey and discover the keys to the kingdom. We gather on Monday evenings from 7:00-8:30 pm in the Russo Room. If you would like more information about RCIA, please call Donna Scancarella at 973-779-6200.
