If you are not Catholic and you have considered the idea of becoming a Catholic, then St. Ann's Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) might just be the right place for you!
The R.C.I.A. process at St. Ann Catholic Church begins in the fall and builds towards a crescendo on the night before Easter when those on the R.C.I.A. journey enter the Catholic Church and receive the Sacraments of Initiation. This four-step journey begins with a "Come and See" Inquiry period during which candidates ask questions and learn about the basic beliefs of the Catholic Church.
While R.C.I.A. is an intense overview of Catholic beliefs and practices, during its opening months candidates are by no means required to make a firm commitment to enter into the Catholic Church. The first step is to help you discern by presenting the Faith to you and helping answer any questions you might have.
St. Ann's RCIA meets at 7 PM every Monday evening beginning on September 26, 2016 in the and Fr. Keith will be with us for our annual RCIA "Kick Off" on Monday, September 19 at 7 PM in the Youth Room.
