RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or RCIA is the
Catholic Church's program to prepare and welcome those
16 years of age or older into the Church. Any person who is unbaptized, or baptized into another Christian denomination and is seeking to learn more about the Catholic Faith is welcomed to the R.C.I.A. at St. Joseph the Worker.
We meet September through April at 7:00 PM on Tuesday Evenings, and introduce and discuss the basic doctrines of our Church, explain our common forms of prayer and worship, pray together the Rites of Initiation leading to Baptism at Easter, and share time in fellowship at various time thought the year.
The RCIA involves the entire community of St. Joseph the Worker. In Addition to the RCIA team, the entire parish eagerly awaits and welcomes all those seeking to join the family that calls God "Father" and prays continuously for them throughout the year.
