What is RCIA?

The RCIA is rightly called a journey, rather than a program, because it is a spiritual journey that varies according to the individual heart and needs of each catechumen or candidate.

The program focuses on faith development and on nurturing one’s relationship with God and the larger Christian community of the parish while learning the teachings of the Catholic Church.  Throughout the year inquirers will move through four distinct stages, discerning at each stage rather to continue on the journey to full membership with the Catholic Church culminating at the Easter Vigil.

If this is something you are interested in, or know someone who is interested in learning more about the church, please consider inquiring about the RCIA program.  Classes will be starting October 6, 2016 at 7 pm.  If you would like more information, please contact Tammy at the parish office 503-668-4446 or email tpagano@stmichaelsandy.org
