The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
Are you thinking about becoming a Catholic Christian? This process that adults embark on to become Catholic is a journey of faith sharing, ritual, catechesis, scripture study, prayer, and reflection, guided and welcomed by members of our parish community.
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a formation process for adults and children over the age of 7 who desire to learn about the Catholic faith and who are considering joining the Catholic Church.
The RCIA team welcomes...
- Those who have never been baptized.
- Those baptized in another Christian faith tradition who may be interested in becoming a Catholic.
- Catholics who were baptized but have not celebrated all of their Sacraments of Initiation (Eucharist and Confirmation).
Please use the links to the left to navigate to other pages which include an overview of RCIA at St. Anthony of Padua, a description of the steps involved in the RCIA Journey, links to other resources and more.
RCIA meets on Thursday evenings for class and during the Sunday 9:00am Mass for Breaking Open the Word. If you are interested, please contact Michael Gormley.
Find God. Love Christ. Become Catholic.
