RCIA

 
The RCIA, Rite of Catholic Initiation of Adults, is a program through which those wishing to become Catholics are prepared for Baptism/Reception, First Communion and Confirmation.  Perhaps you are someone who, although not Catholic, calls St. Andrew's your church.  Perhaps you are Catholic, but missed your First Communion and Confirmation.  If so, the RCIA will teach you what we believe as well as how we practice our faith, and will prepare you for Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation.  It is the Church's way of welcoming new members but it is also intended to renew and deepen the belief of each Catholic.  The parish community supports and encourages all new members on their journey of faith.  The RCIA meets on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm in the Parish Centre. The course material is provided and there is no fee. Classes begin in late September or early October and continue until initiation at the Easter Vigil.
