RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Are you seeking to the join the Catholic Church, or thinking about it?  Do you know someone who is? Are you a Catholic who desires to complete the initiation process by receiving the Eucharist and/or Confirmation?

A weekly series of representations/discussions will begin in September.  We will start with basic Christianity and with discussions develop a picture of what it means to be a Catholic Christian.

Anyone is welcome to attend the first information session on Sunday, September 9, at 10 AM in the rectory basement.

For more information, please contact Mrs. Mary Carney at 610-586-1520 or
