Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Begins with 9:30am Mass on Sunday and then meets in the Marian Room in the Church until Noon.

RCIA is the process by which an unbaptized person, a person baptized in another Christian faith, or a baptized Catholic needing the Sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist, become fully initiated members of the Roman Catholic Church.

Anyone interested in this process needs to attend every weekly session and related activities, as well as take part in special Rites as students move from one stage to the next. Rites usually take place at a Sunday Liturgy during the seasons of Advent and Lent, and education/training is usually a one year process.

For more information, please call the Faith Formation Director at our office (727)541-4447 or email stephenpdouglas@gmail.com.

If you wish to become a member of the “RCIA Team,” serving as a Sponsor, Facilitator or Welcomer, requirements are that you must be a practicing Catholic and a person who is committed and willing to walk on a JOURNEY of FAITH alongside candidates who need support, guidance and witnessing of what living and practicing faith as taught by the Catholic Church looks like in practical living.
