The St. Vincent de Paul parish family welcomes individuals of all faith backgrounds that are interested in exploring the possibility of becoming Catholic to join the Adult Education process known as "RCIA". RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
RCIA offers an opportunity for individuals searching for deeper meaning in their life and for a closer relationship with God to gather in a small group setting with others who are also striving to strengthen their relationship with Christ and learn more about the Catholic faith.
All are invited to this table of inquiry. Some inquirers have been baptized in the Catholic Church or in another Christian tradition; other inquirers have not yet been baptized. Everyone is welcome to explore becoming Catholic. Inquirers may range in age from 18 to 90, plus. Each person hears the "call" in a unique way and at different periods of their lives. God and His Church patiently await a free response to the personal invitation.
RCIA sessions strive to provide a nurturing, accepting environment for adults to share their questions, insights and faith story. The meetings focus on the teachings and experience of the Church and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist during the Easter season.
Anyone interested in exploring this invitation to become Catholic is encouraged to contact the parish office in person at 71 Linden St, by phone at 508-226-1115 X2, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through Facebook.
