RCIA - Becoming Catholic
What is RCIA?
If you feel that the Lord may be calling you to look further into the Catholic Church, the first thing to do is to pray. If in your prayer and discernment you believe that you are being called to look deeper, RCIA is the thing for you. It begins with inquiry. The first few months are simply information sessions that explain the teachings of the Catholic Church and also invite you to a prayerful experience of God. People are free to simply seek information and they are free to ask any questions that they might have. The Church is an open book and there will be no hidden agendas or manipulation in the process.
RCIA orientation begins September 22 at 7:00 pm at St. James Church. As the weeks and months go by, there are certain stages and rites to commemorate them. Classes will continue until Easter Vigil when people are formally received into the Church. All are welcome to come even those who are just coming to learn.
