Adult Faith Formation Opportunities
R.C.I.A (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
Are you, or someone you know, interested in joining the Catholic Church?We, as the Catholic Community of St. Timothy are ready to accompany you on your journey of faith. The process for adults joining the Church is known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
The RCIA is for:
- An unbaptized person who follows a process to help them grow in awareness to God’s call to conversion, as well as ways to respond to that call by receiving the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist.
- People who have been baptized in another Christian church, from a faith tradition other than the Catholic faith, who are seeking full communion with the Catholic Church through the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.
- Those who were baptized in the Catholic Church who have not received formation in the Catholic faith. These adults will be prepared to celebrate the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist
If you have questions about joining the church or the teachings of the Catholic faith, we will have three Inquiry sessions prior to RCIA. Inquiry sessions are an opportunity for you to ask questions; there is no expectation that you will join RCIA Inquiry is a place where you can get answers to your questions in an honest, open environment without any judgment.
For additional information please contact: Brian Sutton (firstname.lastname@example.org) for RCIA or Ric & Michelle Brutocao (email@example.com) for Inquiry.
