Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)


Designed to respond to a call for renewal by the Second Vatican Council, the modern Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) aims to prepare unbaptized individuals to receive the sacraments of initiation and baptized non-Catholic Christians to be received into the Catholic church. Combining catechesis with small-group discussion, scriptural reflection and liturgical celebration, this holistic process of faith formation typically begins in the Fall and culminates in the celebration of the sacraments of initiation at the Easter Vigil. Supported by carefully-selected sponsors, team members, and the witness of the wider parish community, candidates are invited to explore and deepen their relationships with God in the context of the Catholic tradition and to harness their gifts in service to the parish and broader world.

If you or anyone you know is interested in learning more about the process you may contact the parish office at 416 231 6016 or email olosorrows@bellnet.ca

If you would like to assist as a presenter or team member, please call Angela Olkovich at 416 767 3214.

St. Joseph and all you saints of God, pray for me..."
