RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. RCIA is the normal process by which non-Catholics can enter the Catholic Church. However, RCIA classes are open to anyone, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, wishing to learn more about the Catholic faith.
RCIA classes are held on Sunday mornings from 9:00-10:30AM in Holtman Hall. Classes for the 2022-23 liturgical year will start on Sunday, September 11.
A preliminary class schedule (PDF format) for the upcoming 2022-23 liturgical year can be downloaded using the following link:
Yes, RCIA classes will be in person this year. All classes will be held in Holtman Hall unless otherwise stated.
Though we will offer in-person classes, we also plan to offer an online participation option for anyone who is more comfortable connecting remotely. We will be using Google Meet.
The free version of Google Meet only allows one hour meetings, and our RCIA classes last for an hour and a half with a 5 minute break at about the midpoint. So to allow for this, we have a link for the first part of class and for the second:
Simply open the link at the designated time and click the "Join" button.
