We welcome you to Nativity’s Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). RCIA is the process by which adults learn about the Roman Catholic Church and gradually become full members of the Catholic Church. Those who wish to become Catholic are received into the Church every year at the the Easter Vigil Mass. Nativity’s program also includes many people already Catholic by faith and baptism who seek to renew or refresh their knowledge of the faith and their participation in it.
If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].
RCIA is for those who:
Meeting Time: Mondays 7:00 – 8:30 pm (except Federal Holidays)
Location: Nativity School Cafeteria
Our first day of RCIA this year is September 16, 2019 and will end May 11, 2020. Please see our schedule for an overview of the entire program.
RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation of Children) is for children between the ages of 8 and 14 who have completed 2nd grade, whether baptized or unbaptized. Children preparing to receive the Sacraments they have missed since Baptism, or to join the Catholic Church through Baptism, will attend RCIC classes on a regular basis beginning in September and continuing through the Easter Season, with holiday breaks. Each family comes into the RCIC program with different needs. The children will be of various ages and have had different levels of previous instruction.
Parents/guardians of students in grades K through 12 who have NOT received one of the following sacraments, please contact the Religious Education Office.
