Welcome to Immaculate Heart of Mary
Interested in Becoming Catholic? Want to Learn More?
All of us are on a spiritual journey; all are at different mileposts on that journey. Since the very earliest days of the Catholic Church, there has been a process of accepting men, women, children, and entire families into the Church. This process, which we today call the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults/Children (RCIA/RCIC), follows the mission commanded by Jesus Christ: "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit." (Matthew 28)
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the way people are initiated into the Christian way of life, specifically in the Roman Catholic tradition. It is a journey of discovery, where participants come to know Jesus Christ. It is a process of awakening to what it means to be a Catholic Christian. It is an opportunity to explore the Catholic faith. It is a period of discernment to help each individual freely decide if the Catholic Church can be the place to call home. The RCIA is a focused experience of the ever-deepening journey into the life of faith, which is the task of a lifetime.
RCIA is for adults who have never been baptized, those who have been baptized in another Christian denomination, and even those baptized as a Catholic who were unable to continuing learning about the faith. The Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC) is the program of faith journey designed for children, ages 8+. Children participate in the Parish Religious Education Program September through January, when RCIC begins.
Sessions begin Thursday, September 1, 7 PM.
