RCIA Inquiry

Sunday, September 15  •  10:15 a.m.   •   Kinane Center (215 Ridge Terrace)


Are you interested in becoming a Catholic or learning more
about what it means to be a member of the Catholic Church?


Do you know any adults who might be interested in becoming a Catholic? 


If so, then please join us and/or extend our invitation to join the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) Sojourner Program. As one of our “Sojourners” you will be able to learn, in an open and welcoming environment, what the Catholic Church believes, teaches and proclaims to be revealed by God. 

Join us for an inquiry session to answer any and all questions about this process. There is no charge or obligation to commit to the program. All faiths and backgrounds are welcome. The formal RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) sessions will be held weekly on Sundays in the Kinane Center.

For more information, feel free to pick up our brochure “Thinking About Becoming Catholic?” at the entrances to Church or at the rectory, or contact Beshar Bahjat.
