Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

From the time of the apostles, becoming a Christian has been accomplished by a journey and initiation in several stages. This journey can be covered rapidly or slowly, but certain essential elements will always have to be present: proclamation of the Word, acceptance of the Gospel entailing conversion, profession of faith, Baptism itself, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and admission to Eucharistic communion. CCC #1229 

The second Vatican Council restored for the Latin Church “the catechumenate for adults, comprising several distinct steps.” The rites for these stages are to be found in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).

The classes for RCIA are held on Wednesday evenings at St. Mark Church Sullivan Room at 7 pm, following the 6:30 pm Mass, as part of the “Faith Matters” series. The schedule will be available in September.
