RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Rite of Passage.png

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is the Catholic Church’s process for people interested in being baptized as a Catholic Christian or becoming fully initiated in the Catholic Church. RCIA normally runs September through Easter.

The RCIA team provides opportunities for the awakening or rekindling of a relationship with Jesus Christ within questioning hearts and souls. Team members greet candidates, lead small group discussions, and accompany those interested in becoming Catholic. They share their experiences, pray and facilitate discussions on the teachings of the Church.

If you would like more information about the RCIA program or the Catholic faith, please contact Phil Lewandowski at phil@stjosephavonlake.org or 440.653.5638.
