A letter from our Archbishop,
Cardinal Tobin

You don’t change your life for an idea…

You change your life for a person!
This Advent, don’t get caught up in the busyness.  
Don’t get lost in the anxiety of preparing for a day.
Joyfully anticipate the coming of the person of Jesus
through an encounter with his Most Blessed Mother.
Imagine having an Advent that is more peaceful,

more joyful and more meaningful than ever before!!

“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

Father, 
You invite each one of us by name 
and ask us to follow You.
We ask that You bless Your Church
in the Archdiocese of Newark
by raising up dedicated and generous leaders 
from our families and friends
who will faithfully serve Your people
as Priests, Religious Brothers and Sisters, 
and as holy Married and Single people.
Inspire us to grow in our
relationship with You and open
our hearts to accept Your invitation.
We ask this in the name
of Jesus our Lord.  Amen
“Becoming a priest or a man or woman religious 
is not primarily our own decision…. 
Rather it is the response to a call and
to a call of love.”
