The Rite of Christian Initiaion of Adults (RCIA)
RCIA is a liturgical process of initiation into the Catholic church and sacramental life for people who have never been baptized or those who have been baptized in another Christian tradition. RCIA is a year round process of initiation and we welcome new inquirers to the process anytime of the year. RCIA is for any person over the age of seven.
Following Vatican II, the church has been called to welcome new members through this process of evangelization, community involvement, catechesis, and formation of mission that culminates in the celebration of the Sacraments at the Easter Vigil.
The entire parish family is responsible for welcoming new members through their involvement in this process by sponsoring Catechumens or Candidates, prayerfully supporting their catechesis and walking with them on their spiritual journey.
The RCIA team at Saint John the Baptist Parish welcomes volunteers to help on the team, or to be a sponsor to someone interested in joining the church.
RCIA is ongoing throughout the year and interested persons may join us at any time. For more information please contact Teranie Pelch, 801-984-7106.
Inquirer Classes: Tuesday evenings, 7:00 - 9:00 pm
