Religious Education for Adults
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) serves to form adults seeking full initiation and communion in the Catholic Church. At St. Francis, if you have not been confirmed as a Catholic, or you are a member of a different faith tradition (or no tradition at all), we warmly invite you to seek full communion in the Catholic Church through the reception of the Sacraments. This is a spiritual journey to which God is calling you so that you might receive the fullness of His grace (Jn 1:16).
If you are an adult seeking the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation) or a baptized member of another Christian religious background seeking full communion with the Catholic Church, please contact the parish office at 434-1878.
