Thinking about becoming Catholic? “Come and see …”
The individuals we now call the “Apostles” were ﬁrst told by Jesus to “come and see.” The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is an exploration and a time of discernment for those who would like to learn and experience more about Catholicism. Both un-baptized people and those baptized in a different Christian tradition are welcome to enter into this process and see where the Spirit leads them!
We will formally start our RCIA gatherings on Tuesday nights in mid-September and continue to gather weekly throughout the fall, winter, and into the spring. For those who have continued to hear God’s call to full participation in the Catholic Church, the Sacraments of Initiation will be celebrated at Old St. Pat’s on Holy Saturday night, April 20, 2019 at the Easter Vigil celebration.
If you or someone you know might be interested in participating in the RCIA or even simply “checking it out,” please contact Keara Ette (firstname.lastname@example.org).
