The Rites of Christian Initiation, RCIA, will begin on September 8, 7:00pm, in the Parish Center lobby. RCIA is for people who are not baptized and are seeking baptism in the Catholic Church. It is for baptized Protestants who would like to discern a possible conversion to Catholicism. It is also for baptized Catholics who have not finished their Sacraments of Initiation, namely Confirmation and Holy Communion. Finally, it is for fully initiated Catholics who would like a thorough review of their faith.
Every year we ask you to discern someone you may want to invite to the Catholic Faith. Perhaps your spouse who is not Catholic, but has been thinking about it for a while. Perhaps a friend you have been speaking to about your faith. Perhaps it is a co-worker who seems to be open when you share your faith. Who has God put into your life that could benefit from the great gift of the Catholic Faith and everlasting life with God? Ask the Lord to give you the Holy Spirit’s gift of courage to bring others to the Catholic Church.
