Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
 

 

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is designed for individuals who are considering becoming Catholic.  This process is designed for individuals who are considering becoming Catholic.  Who should attend?

 

  • Persons who have never been baptized as Christians.
  • Persons who have been Baptized in another Faith and are now interested in the Catholic Tradition.
  • Persons who were Baptized in the Catholic Faith but were not raised Catholic and did not receive the Sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation. 

RCIA is the process by which an adult joins the Catholic faith.  For those not baptized this process leads to the Easter Vigil where they receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. Those who have been previously baptized in a Christian tradition are invited into full communion in the Church through the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.

RCIA is a journey that the community of St. Maximilian Kolbe also shares as we grow and strengthen our faith.  At St. Maximilian Kolbe, participants meet weekly in addition to regular Mass attendance.  The sessions provide a relaxed, informative environment.  We welcome our new members who bring new life and talents to our church.  Please continue to pray for those who are discerning if this is the time to begin the process.  We continue to pray that they may be open to accept the beliefs of the Catholic Faith.

The process is not limited to a calendar year. Each participant discerns when God is calling him/her to a decision of faith. Click here to download a copy of the St. Maximilian Kolbe RCIA brochure.

RCIA Prayer
 

 

O God, we thank you for implanting the gift of faith in human hearts. We thank you for sending Jesus, Your Son, as the fullness of your love. May his life and mission lead us to share in your divine life.

Today we ask you to bless in a special way all inquirers, catechumens, and candidates, who have generously responded to the invitation  of Jesus: “Come, follow me.”  Help them to persevere in their journey of faith despite any difficulties.  Bless those who minister through the RCIA program so that , under the guidance of your Holy Spirit, they may lead others to a life of faith in Jesus Christ.  Grant that all parishioners will take an active role in bringing new members into the Church.  Call us all to a renewal of our faith, and inspire us all to be your light in the world.

Through Christ, our Lord. Amen
