RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Would you like to explore the Catholic faith in an even deeper way? Would you like to begin the journey of entering the Church? Then you are invited to join RCIA.

The parish RCIA program began in September and finishes in Spring 2017. Classes are held each Monday evening from 7:00-9:00 pm in the Parish Center. 

The deadline to sign-up for RCIA has now passed for this year. The deadline to sign up for adult confirmation is Wednesday, December 14.

If you are interested in registering for RCIA for next year or finding out more about the Catholic faith, the parish will hold monthly Inquiry nights on Mondays where you can meet members of the parish and find out more about the faith and the RCIA process. 

For more information, or to register please contact Sandi Campbell at 703.527.550 or parishsecretary@stcharleschurch.org. 

The Rite of Christian Initiation is not a "sign-up" for becoming a Catholic. It is a time of no obligation, during which we pursue the Truth and the Meaning of life, answers to eternal questions, and the truths, teachings, and practices of the Catholic Church.
