RCIA Class Forming

Would you or someone you know like to learn more about the Catholic faith and what Catholics profess to believe? Perhaps you—or your spouse or fiancé—would like to become Catholic? Maybe you were raised Catholic, but never received the sacrament of Confirmation? Or maybe you’ve drifted away from the Church and want to renew your connection to Catholicism by entering into full communion with the Church.

 

R.C.I.A. aims to address all the above situations.  The class can be taken for information only and there is never any pressure to be confirmed, although participants are fully prepared for Baptism, Penance, Eucharist, and/or Confirmation if desired. We are now enrolling for the next session of R.C.I.A. which will begin on Sunday, August 7th, and conclude on Sunday, December 4th. Reception into full communion with the Roman Catholic Church will take place at the 5:00 p.m. Vigil Mass on Saturday, November 19th. 

Class will meet on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. with Mass to follow at 11:30 a.m.. As we have successfully done throughout the pandemic, the class will adhere to current CDC and Archdiocese of Atlanta guidelines regarding COVID-19. If a resurgence of Coronavirus necessitates implementation of stricter safety measures or facility closures, the class will continue to be held remotely without interruption to the curriculum. A nominal fee of $35 is required to register for the course; this fee helps cover the cost of books and other materials. Because acceptance into the program requires pastoral approval, prospective R.C.I.A. participants should begin gathering now sacramental documents, including—if applicable—certificates of baptism and marriage. Remote interviews with participants are now being held; please contact Dr. David King to arrange registration. The deadline for registration is July 24th.
