R.C.I.A.

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

If you or a family member:

  •  Never received the Sacrament of Baptism
  •  Were baptized but never received the Sacraments of Holy Eucharist or Confirmation

this process is for you!  The “Inquiry” phase of the process involves some reading on such topics as:

  •  The Bible
  •  Catholic Practices
  •  The Saints
  •  Liturgy

Through the use of pamphlets, prayer and reflection, this will give you an outline of the Roman Catholic faith and prepare you for the “Catechumenate” phase of the process which includes weekly meetings.  If you are interested in learning more please contact the Faith Formation office, 203-329-8783 or by e-mail at  faithformation@stceciliastamford.org.
