Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a practice that dates back to the earliest years of the Church.  Through RCIA non-Christians are brought into the Church through the Sacraments of Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation.  The program is also the process by which Christians from another denomination enter into Full Communion with the Catholic Church through the same education and preparation, and then receiving their First Communion, and Confirmation.

Are you searching and have found the fullness of Truth in the teachings of the Church?  Are you Catholic and never completed your initiation Sacraments?  Are you curious and just want to learn more?  Come check out RCIA at St John’s.  The program meets twice per month on Sundays from September to May – but inquiries about the program can come any time!

Register for RCIA today or learn about more information by contacting Joshua Schaffner, our director of  Catechesis & Discipleship.


This past year we brought 32 into full communion with the Catholic Church!
