Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

IS GOD calling you to follow Him?
Are you seeking greater meaning in your life?

Are you experiencing restlessness?

Are you interested in inquiring about the Catholic Church?
Have you been baptized but haven’t completed your Christian initiation through the reception of the sacraments of Confirmation and the Holy Eucharist?
Have you been distanced from the Catholic Church and are desirous of re-integrating yourself into the life of the Church?

HERE at Holy Family Catholic Church we have a process that enables people to explore a relationship with Jesus Christ and with the Catholic faith.

This process introduces our inquirers and candidates to Jesus and our Catholic teachings about God, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We also explore the Catholic understanding of the Bible and become more familiar with Scripture, the Church, Sacraments, Commandments of God, Precepts of the Catholic Church and Prayer.

We travel through all phases of our Catholic beliefs, traditions, rituals and practices during the RCIA process.

Each person, who, after a period of inquiry, chooses to become Catholic, makes his or her faith journey with a godparent or sponsor. The godparent or sponsor has the opportunity to deepen his or her faith life as he or she shares experiences during this journey with the catechumen or candidate. The godparents or sponsors don’t have “the answers” but instead have a living faith which they share with the catechumens and candidates in the process.

The RCIA journey begins with the Inquiry Period and the Easter Vigil Celebration are fully initiated in Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist.

Whether you would like to become a Catholic or you know of someone who would like more information about the Catholic faith:
