RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS
The process for becoming a Catholic is called The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) which involves a series of sessions. Your first step is to call St. Michael’s Church and tell them you would like to know more about becoming Catholic. This process can take several months depending on your knowledge of the faith and your baptismal status.
There will be a series of classes, either for an individual or in a group depending on the number of people interested. These classes will introduce, those interested, to important fundamentals of the Catholic Church including:
– The Catholic Faith
– What we believe
– Christ: Priest, Profit and King – How that relates to our role as priest, profit and king
– Sacraments – with emphasis on-
– Catechism of the Catholic Church for Adults
– Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Lively Virtues
– The New Evangelization
The classes are meant to be interactive and engaging with time for discussion. Classes will meet a minimum of two evenings per month with hope of entering into full communion with the Church at the Easter Vigil. All classes will be conducted by the parish staff, including Priests, Deacon and laity.
Please contact the parish office for more information and for start dates.
