RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation For Adults)

St. Raymond Parish is a wonderful faith community with a strong tradition of warmth, inclusiveness, and outreach to those who are hurting.  We find strength, love and support in this parish and we invite others who might be searching for a faith community to consider joining us.  The RCIA is designed for women and men who have never been baptized or who were baptized in another Christian denomination and are considering becoming Catholic.  It is also appropriate for baptized Catholics who have received little formal religious education and have not received the sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation.

The RCIA is a formation process for adult women and men to explore the Catholic faith in a community of believers, and if they so choose, to be initiated into this faith community.  Each person’s quest for God is unique, and we are most respectful of each one’s particular journey.  Throughout the process the candidates are mentored and supported by some wonderful St. Raymond parishioners, who form the “RCIA Team.”

We meet weekly on Monday evenings beginning in September and end 5 weeks after Easter.  We reflect upon the Scripture readings for the following Sunday and engage in faith-sharing.  We also study the Church’s teachings and we pray together.  Additionally, we are involved in the parish liturgies during Advent and Lent.  We take advantage of particular opportunities to be involved in the life of the parish.  During this time the group develops a marvelous sense of belonging and an awareness of God’s active presence in their lives.  Each year the candidates are received into the church at the Easter Vigil.
