RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS (RCIA)
Are you ready to take your next steps on your journey of faith? RCIA provides a personal journey leading to transformation of mind and spirit, in which we consider and deepen our relationship with God and consider how we can serve others. Guided by the Gospel and by the examples provided by church members and fellow journeyers, you can be baptized and/or become fully integrated into the Catholic community of believers through the RCIA process. If you are looking into fully realizing your faith walk, you are invited and encouraged to participate. RCIA is also seeking members of our community who are willing to support our candidates during the RCIA journey. This can take several forms: journeying with a specific individual during the coming year as a sponsor or supporting one of our candidates through prayer and periodic messages of support. Companions are not required to attend our weekly RCIA sessions. The journey begins on Thursday, September 19. For information, contact Kevin and Alice Curtin: 703-461-3082 email@example.com
