Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)
RCIA is the one-year program of study required for adults who either wish to explore entering the Catholic Church or be confirmed in the Catholic Church. RCIA is a “rite” because after months of study, there are special ceremonies of qualification and then reception of the sacraments at the Easter vigil mass. RCIA meets on a regular weekly schedule from Fall to Spring.  We also welcome already confirmed Catholics interested in deepening their understanding of the faith.  We also welcome new leaders of the program and sponsors for those entering the Catholic Church.  For details contact Marisa March at rcia@saintsaj.org or 215-275-4026.  You may indicate your interest in RCIA and get more information by completing this RCIA Interest Form.
