RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Mondays, 7:00-9:00pm in Room 105

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 Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults provides a period of education and discernment for those considering joining the Catholic Church. 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. 

The next RCIA course will begin in September 2018 and runs through Spring 2019. Classes are held each Monday evening from 7:00-9:00 pm in the Parish Center. 

If you are interested in registering for RCIA, please contact Celeste White at or 703.527.5500.
