Our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program will be starting in September of 2016. The RCIA is a program for those who wish to inquire about possibly becoming a Roman Catholic, or possibly would like to return to the Catholic faith.
RCIA provides basic information regarding the teachings and Doctrines of the faith and about God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, Sacred Scripture, the Sacraments of the Catholic faith, Catholic liturgy and worship, the saints, and other topics regarding the faith.
Do you know of someone who is interested in becoming Catholic, or is interested in returning to the Catholic Church?
Here at St. James Church we have not had anyone go through the RCIA since 2014, and that was only one person.
So what are you doing to help promote the faith? What can you do to encourage, or reach out to those in our community who might want to be a part of the RCIA journey?
I do hope and pray that this upcoming RCIA session for 2016-2017 will be a great period of interest and inquiry, as well as meeting new people who are curious about the Catholic faith.
Are you ready and open to help foster interest about Our Lord, and His Church?
