RCIA – The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

What is RCIA?

RCIA, Right of Christian Initiation for Adults, is a process which encourages adults, teens, and children to learn more about and embrace the Catholic faith deeply in their own lives. St. Joseph Parish helps facilitate an encounter with Jesus to people who are longing for a deeper relationship..  Some may have no knowledge of Him, others could be baptized into a different faith and long to see Jesus in a new way, and some could be fallen away Catholics that long to be back in relationship with Jesus. Your journey is personal to you.

When St. Andrew took Peter to meet Jesus all that he said to Peter was “I have found the Messiah.” The best way to bring people to Jesus is tell them about how you have experienced the love that Jesus has for all people.  How would you complete this sentence, “I have found … in Jesus.” 

St. Andrew be our guide as we try to bring people to Jesus, just like you brought Peter to Him.

Do you have a desire to share your faith with inquiring adults?  Do you know someone who would be interested in deepening their faith?  Reach out to the Parish Office to learn more about our entering the Catholic Church.
