RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

 


What is RCIA?
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is a process in which adults or children over the age of reason (usually 7 years or older) desiring to explore the Catholic faith come together to learn, pray, and share life experiences in order to come to know our loving God.  With the support of the parish community and working with a team of adult catechists, people interested in preparing for any/all of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation) will be guided to a deeper understanding and relationship with God lived out through the Church.

By sharing faith conviction, spiritual insights, and enthusiasm for their life within the Church, they help others who are exploring what it means to be Catholic to come to a sense of what a Catholic faith commitment could mean to them, and in many cases, to make that commitment for themselves.  Anyone interested in journeying through faith to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, please contact Sharon in the Parish Office at 781-894-3481 ext. 2 or at parish@olca.org and she will have someone from the RCIA team reach out to you.

We welcome all who want to journey in faith, realizing that we all come with our own life experiences.  Whatever your background, you are welcome and valued.
