“Life is a journey that should
not be walked alone…
Are you interested in exploring Catholicism for
yourself or do you know someone who might
be interested in finding out more about our faith?
Are you baptized in another Christian church
or thinking about joining the Catholic Church?
Are you Catholic but never received
Confirmation or First Communion?
If so, then RCIA may be for you!
What is the RCIA?
How does someone become Catholic?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
is the process by which people
can question, search, and inquire
into the Catholic faith.
It is a journey that leads many to seek
full membership in our Catholic Church
Our RCIA program addresses the conversion needs for:
- Adults who have never been baptized;
- Adults who have been baptized in another Christian tradition;
- Adults who were baptized Catholic but have had no instruction in the faith or have not received the Sacraments of First Eucharist and/or Confirmation.
RCIA is about growth in faith and growth
in a relationship with God.
Saint Ann Catholic Church
invites you to get answers to
ALL your questions about the Catholic faith…
You do not have to journey alone!!
SESSIONS continue throughout the year!

Saint Ann Catholic Church RCIA Program

Inspire us to grow in our

is not primarily our own decision….
Rather it is the response to a call and
to a call of love.”
