RCIA First Class Sunday Sep 10th

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS (RCIA) Are you interested in becoming Catholic? Were you baptized but have not received the sacraments of First Holy Communion or Confirmation? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then RCIA is for you. RCIA is the process the Catholic Church uses for instructing and preparing persons who are interested in becoming Catholic as well as baptized Catholics who have not received the other sacraments of initiation (First Holy Communion and/or Confirmation). It is also for those returning to the church or who simply want to learn more about the Faith. We will begin a new program on Sunday, September 10, 2017. Classes are held on Sunday mornings after the 10:30 a.m. Mass in the parish hall. To schedule an appointment to discuss your interest further or to register for RCIA: There are registration forms in the vestibule of the church or contact Ron Meyers at 410-206-6501 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
