Are you or someone you know and being drawn toward Christ?
Are you a person just seeking more?
Are you sharing your faith with others?
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is instruction in the Catholic Faith, for those:
In his last words to the apostles, Jesus gave them a mission:
"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you."
Thus, the teaching mission of the Church comes from Christ himself. The responsibility for fulfilling that mandate passes on unchanged to the bishops and to all Catholics.
Fulfill your spiritual life in the Sacraments. This year's Program is currently in session and will conclude at Easter Vigil. To register for the R.C.I.A. Program for the 2017-2018 year, please call Kristi Bushner, Adult Faith Formation Director at 215-482-4600, email email@example.com, or after hours please leave your name and phone number.
