RCIA Calendar

RCIA meets every Thursday in the Parish Center from 6:45 PM to 9 PM.  Classes typically start in early September and culminate with the Easter Vigil.  To learn more, or begin your journey to becoming Catholic, please contact the Directors of RCIA; Deacon Marcel Soklaski or Dorothy Soklaski.

So now what?

RCIA consists of four periods of formation which are marked by rituals that celebrate what has been completed and call a person into the next phase. There is no specific length of time for each period. The RCIA is a journey which gives a person time for prayer, study, and conversion so as to hear the Word of God and embrace the call to discipleship and holiness. The stages are as follows:

  • The Inquiry or Precatechumenate
  • The Catechumenate
  • The Lenten period of Purification and Enlightenment
  • Mystagogy or a time of deeper understanding of the “mysteries”

How does RCIA work?

The RCIA is for four groups of people:

  • Those who are not baptized.
  • Those who were baptized into another Christian denomination and wish to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church.
  • Baptized Catholics who were never formed in the Catholic faith and have not completed their initiation; that is, who have received neither the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.
  • Fully initiated Catholics (having received all three sacraments of Initiation) who desire to learn more about Scripture and their Catholic Faith.  Catholics can attend class on a per topic basis, refer to the calendar for class times and topics.

Is RCIA for me?

RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and it is the process through which persons – adults and children – join or complete their initiation into the Catholic Church. For additional information contact Deacon Marcel or Dorothy Soklaski 801.572.9734

What is RCIA

From the time of the apostles, becoming a Christian has been accomplished by a journey and initiation in several stages. This journey can be covered rapidly or slowly, but certain essential elements will always have to be present: proclamation of the Word, acceptance of the Gospel entailing conversion, profession of faith, Baptism itself, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and admission to Eucharistic communion.

Each year on Holy Saturday during the Easter Vigil,  thousands of men and women are received into the Catholic Church in the United States. Parishes welcome these new members through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and at a liturgy bringing men and women into full communion with the Catholic Church
