The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process through which interested adults are gradually introduced to the Catholic faith and way of life.  All who are interested in becoming Catholic or anyone who has been Baptized and need to complete their sacraments or anyone who wants to learn more about their faith are encouraged to attend these free classes.  Students will receive all their Sacraments at the Easter Vigil Mass.

  • English RCIA classes will begin August 21, 2019 at 6:30 PM and will meet every Wednesday at 6:30 PM (room to be determined)
  • We are starting a Spanish RCIA class (RICA) which will begin August 19, 2019 at 5:30 PM in Room #2

RICA - Rito de Iniciacion Cristiana para Adultos 
RICA es un proceso por el cual una persona que desea recibir los sacramentos en la Iglesia Católica es instruida en la fe Católica. Tambien es para aquellos adultos mayores de 18 años que ya han sido bautizados pero desean recibir la Sagrada Comunión y el sacramento de la Confirmación pueden participar de este programa. Los cursos de RICA – comienzan en Agosto 19, 2019 a las 5:30pm y se reúnen una vez por semana en el salon #2.  Los candidatos y catecúmenos son recibidos en la fe en la vigilia de Pascua.  Para registrarse para los cursos, visite nuestra página web o visite la oficina de la Parroquia.  Si tiene preguntas, por favor de llamar a Yvette Serna al (505) 897-4006.
