Rite of Christian Inititiation for Adults
The purpose of the RCIA program is to foster the development and enrichment of an intimate relationship with God for those adults interested in learning more about the Catholic faith through scripture reflection and discussion and study of Catholic traditions, values and church teachings. Participants include Inquirers, Catechumens, Elect, Sponsors, Interested Parishioners and RCIA Team. RCIA Inquirers typically consist of: 1) a non-Catholic adult interested in learning more about the Catholic Church, 2) a non-Catholic adult seeking to receive initiation sacraments for full entry to the Catholic Church, 3) a Catholic adult seeking to receive First Eucharist and/or Confirmation, or 4) a Catholic adult seeking renewal after a long absence.
There are volunteer opportunities for St. Luke Catholic adults to serve as a personal sponsor for the Inquirers, Catechumen and Elect. The role of the sponsor is to be a companion to the Inquirer, Catechumen and Elect on their faith journey. They should be willing to share their own faith journey with the candidate and represent the whole faith community of St. Luke.
RCIA generally meets September through May on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm in the Family Life Center.
