For adults today, the Church, after the Second Vatican Council, has restored the order of the Catechumenate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). It outlines the steps for the formation of catechumens, bringing their conversion to the faith to a greater maturity. It helps them respond more deeply to God's gracious initiative in their lives and prepares them for union with the Church community. This process is meant to form them into the fullness of the Christian life and to become disciples of Jesus, their teacher.
If you are interested in becoming a Catholic this is the route you must take if you have never been instructed in the Catholic faith or have never been baptized in the the Catholic faith. If you were baptized in another denomination and now want to become Catholic R.C.I.A. is where you need to be. Classes have already started so if you are interested please contact the Rectory at 440-324-4212.
