Rite of Christian Initiation of Adult
|RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the Catholic Church’s
post-Vatican II version of Adult Religious Education. It has been an
active program for many years offered to parishioners of St. Anthony’s
parish who either want to become Catholic or want to receive sacraments
they missed as children. It is also for those who just want to update
their faith education since Vatican II.
Due to the fact that each parish has such a small number of applicants, the St. Anthony’s program has been sharing our instructional classes with those of Most Precious Blood Parish since the Fall of 2005. All sacraments are performed in each candidate’s home parish.
We also need team members, that is, people who would like to share their Catholic Faith with those who want to learn about it.
