Were you baptized in the Catholic Church but never made your First Communion or Confirmation?  We invite you to join the Rite of Christian Initiation (R.C.I.A.) which begins in September of each year and normally prepares people to enter the Church at the Easter Vigil in the following Spring.  The process includes classes, a relationship with a sponsor, retreats, and rituals during Mass.  The entire process is intended to be a process of spiritual growth, as well as a process of learning about the Catholic Church.

For more information about the R.C.I.A., contract Ricardo Valdez, Director of Faith Formation, 392-6700, ext. 111 or rvaldez@stfrancisholland.org .
