We are taking registrations now for this year’s RCIA

Change the world! Become a Catholic.

Your reasons are as unique as you are – you want your children to be educated in the Catholic school system. You are seeking meaning and purpose in your own life. You want your family to grow in virtue and kindness. You want to enter into a deep Sacramental relationship with Jesus through His Church. You want to make sense of the many questions you have about God. You want to experience the deep mysteries of Holy Communion. You want to set a good example for others.

RCIA stands for “Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.” It is a process in four parts that prepares adults of every background to discover God’s design for their lives, to get to know the real Jesus, and to receive the Sacraments of Initiation – Baptism, Confirmation, and First Holy Communion. It is an opportunity to learn more about God, find the meaning of life, and to discover the virtues.

RCIA is primarily intended for those who have never been baptized, or who have little or no experience of the Church except perhaps in childhood.

For Catholic adults who have already been Baptized and who are familiar with the Mass, as well as for baptized non-Catholics who have been coming to Mass, we have a shorter process which takes place on Monday evenings. There is more information about this process below.

Everyone is welcome to drop in to any of our RCIA meetings to check it out. Thank you to our sponsors and hospitality ministers!

St. Peter’s currently makes use of a scholastic model of RCIA, with periods of fixed term, and Rites with fixed dates, keyed to the liturgical year of the Church. Here’s our Schedule
