RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
The RCIA program is a four-step journey within the parish life for non-Catholic baptized adults or any unbaptized person over the age of 7 who choose the Roman Catholic Church in their faith commitment as well as community and spiritual guidance in their personal lives. Designed to welcome new members into the Catholic Church, the RCIA program also leads every Catholic parishioner to deeper belief and the renewal of his/her Christian faith. Classes begin in the fall with the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist administered at the Easter Vigil Mass accordingly. Contact the Director of Religious Education, Michele Hundermark at 610-543-5448.
