Adults & Teens Baptized Catholic, but "uncatechized" and Desiring Eucharist and/or Confirmation
RCIA is a journey of faith. Curious persons come to inquire what Catholic Christian life is all about. If they want, they can become Catholic, by being baptized into the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ - or by Reception into the Full Communion of the Catholic Church. Also through the RICA, those adults and teens baptized Catholic who desire Eucharist and/or Confirmation may prepare for these sacraments.
At St. Monica the RCIA Sessions are on Thursday evenings from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Sessions begin in the main Church. Adults can begin on almost any Thursday evening of the year. Persons ages 7 years to 18 years usually begin in the RCIA early September.
All persons are welcome at RCIA Sessions!
If a persons cannot make a Thursday evening, we try our best to find a way to help that person connect with the RCIA at another time and day.
