RCIA-Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
“All you who are thirsty, come to the water! You who have no money,… come, without paying and without cost, Why spend your money for what is not bread; your wages for what fails to satisfy? ...Come to me heedfully, listen, that you may have life.” Isaiah 55: 1-3
Are you an adult who is wondering what it would be like to receive the Initial Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist and/or Confirmation? If you are seeking to enter into a new way of faith and want to inquire about becoming Catholic or if you have been Baptized and never received the Sacraments of First Communion (Eucharist) and Confirmation, come and join us as we begin our journey towards the one who offers “the way and the truth and the life”. (John 14: 6)
RCIA Classes begin September 11, 2016 at 9:00 am in the Works of Mercy Bldg. for adults (18 and older).
