Welcome to the RCIA page for Holy Spirit Catholic Church.
If you are interested in becoming Catholic or completing your Catholic sacraments, then RCIA is for you. "RCIA" stands for "Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults" and it simply refers to the gradual process one takes to learn about Catholic teachings, enter into a Catholic parish community and finally be received into the Catholic Church at Easter. The process may take as little as a few months for an adult who was baptized Catholic and only needs preparation for First Communion and Confirmation or it may take years for someone to be at peace with the decision to become Catholic.
Currently our RCIA sessions meet on Monday evenings from 7:00-9:00PM in the Multi-Purpose room beginning on September 17th. Sessions are recorded for those who miss a class or two. If you need to make special arrangements for a meeting time other than Monday evenings, please contact Jon Schaffhausen.
