    Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults  - RCIA
    The RCIA prepares both non-Catholics and those Catholics who have only been baptized, to receive the
    sacraments for full participation in the life of the Church. RCIA is a gradual process that takes place within the
    community of the faithful; a spiritual journey of adults which centers around conversion, change of direction.

    We gather at St. Bernard's Rectory on Thursday evenings from 7:15 - 9:00.  Those interested in the
    Catholic faith with an eye towards joining our faith community are invited to attend.  There is no
    financial cost or obligation.
