Rite of Christian Initiation being offered locally starting in Sept.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is for those who have considered the Catholic Church as their way of life.

The RCIA is the process whereby:

• Adults who wish to be baptized in the Catholic Faith and receive the Sacraments of Confirmation and the Eucharist.

• Those who have been baptized into another Christian faith tradition and desire to become members of the Catholic Faith.  

• Or those who have been baptized as Catholics and have not received the Sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation, are led through a series of instructions and prayer in a group setting.

Weekly sessions will be held at St. Mary Catholic Church on Wednesday evenings beginning Sept. 5 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Huntington Catholic Middle School Building, located at 903 N. Jefferson St. (use gym door entrance).

An initial interview of each person interested in RCIA should be completed prior to Sept. 5, with Dan DeLaGrange. Call the church office for more information at 356-4398.
