RCIA: Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
What is the RCIA?
In the Gospel stories of Jesus and how people started to follow him, we see that he calls followers in different ways, such as walking along the shore and stopping tospeak to two fishermen, or when He met the two disciples on the road to Emmaus and began walking with them, or when Jesus encountered a short man who climbed a tree and Jesus invited him to dinner and so, Jesus invites us to walk with Him in different ways of invitation.
If you or a friend, or a family member are feeling that invitation to follow Jesus through the sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, First Eucharist, Confirmation) and are over 18 years of age, please come and join us on Tuesday evenings to begin the Journey to encountering Jesus in a relationship that deepens through living the Sacraments to their fullness.
We have an on-going RCIA and because of the pandemic, we are meeting through Zoom. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Sr. Joyanne Sullivan at 323-254-2519.
In the early Church, when adults were baptized they were also anointed with perfumed oil called chrism. This anointing highlights the name "Christian," which means "anointed" and is taken from the name of Christ, whom God "anointed with the Holy Spirit." (Rev. 7:2-3) It is the third and final part of Christian initiation, which begins with baptism and is renewed each week in a person's participation in Sunday Mass. Confirmation strengthens the gift of the Holy Spirit received at baptism and is the special outpouring of the Holy Spirit as once given to the apostles on the day of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit is the Christian's guide throughout life.
The Advocate, the holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name—he will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you.
The Teen Confirmation program is for teens in grades 9-12. The two-year program begins in September, and all are asked to register beginning late August of each year. There is one class for Year 1 and another class for Year 2. For more information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Regular Mass attendance and parent involvement is crucial and required to prepare for this Sacrament.
