BECOMING CATHOLIC THE  R.C.I.A. PROCESS

 

Have you or someone close to you (a spouse, a friend, a neighbor) been thinking about becoming a Catholic? Has anyone ever mentioned to you that they wish they had your faith?

Here is an opportunity for you or someone you know to learn more about becoming a Catholic. Our “no obligation” Inquiry Sessions will begin on Thursday, Sept. 10th at 6:30pm in Feckter Hall. Just come once and “inquire” about the Catholic faith and the process (called RCIA  the Rite of Chris/an Initiation of Adults) of becoming a member of the Catholic Church.

This Inquiry could begin a journey of faith that begins in the fall each year and formally climaxes with the Easter Vigil, when the unbaptized get baptized, the baptized Christians make a Profession of Faith as a Catholic, and the Catholics who are not confirmed can receive Confirmation.

The RCIA involves a weekly meeting that includes Teaching about the Catholic faith and spiritual formation and prayer. Anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic Church can call the Parish Office, 314-892-6882, to let us know you might be interested in coming to that first Inquiry session, or to just ask any questions about the RCIA process. Current parish members who are aware of anyone interested becoming Catholic are encouraged to engage in conversa/on those persons who show an interest in the Catholic Church. This may lead them to consider joining the RCIA, or at least come to the first session.
