Are you curious about the Catholic Church?
Has your search for the truth led you to the Catholic Church?
Do you desire to become Catholic?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process for individuals to become Catholic and receive the sacraments of initiation -- Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist.  The Rite speaks of the conversion as a “spiritual journey or pilgrimage.” Centered on fostering a deep relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church He founded, this pilgrimage takes place through distinct stages over a period of time suitable to bring about a thorough catechesis, deep experiences of parish community, and commitment to the liturgical and moral life of the Church.

At St. Ignatius, RCIA begins in September and continues weekly until Easter.  Classes are open to anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic faith or who are considering joining the Church.  Catholics desiring more catechesis are also welcome.  The purpose of the class is to present the fundamental tenets of our Faith in the hope that it begins a lifelong journey for those who seek the Truth. 

Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m., following the Catholic school calendar for holidays and breaks.
