You are invited to participate in RCIA, a program for learning about Catholic faith and spirituality, and for preparing to receive the sacraments of initiation.

RCIA is designed for adults who are not Catholic. There is no obligation to join the church if you participate: seekers, inquirers, and undecided folks are all welcome!

Our goal is to support your own spiritual growth and well-being as we share the beauty of the Catholic faith with you in a friendly, no-pressure context. Of course, if you decide you want to become a Catholic, we will support you in that process.

A new RCIA cohort begins in September. This summer we are hosting several informal Open House meetings and we encourage you to attend. Yes, we will have cookies for you!

Dates of the RCIA Open Houses:

  • Sunday, July 24, after the 9:00am Mass
  • Sunday, August 7, after the 10:15am Mass
  • Sunday, August 21, after the 11:30am Mass

Look for RCIA representatives after Mass, we’ll be holding signs to identify ourselves. (If you miss us, we’ll be meeting in the St. Julie Room) Hope to see you there! And if you have any questions or want more info, please email the RCIA co-directors, Fran and Carl McColman, at rcia@stmgaparish.org
