Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)
RCIA is the formation process whereby adults become Catholic from another faith tradition or no faith background. RCIA is designed for those who are considering joining the Catholic Church through celebrating the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) at the Easter Vigil. The process welcomes adults who have never been baptized and those who have been baptized in another Christian tradition. The journey is Scripture-centered and involves sharing, fellowship, and doctrine. 

RCIA is a restoration of an ancient practice of initiation into the Catholic Church, which is a process of discernment and ritual leading to sacramental initiation in the Catholic Church. 

Mother of Good Counsel would be delighted for you to join us for any length of this journey.  No commitment is necessary before we start – simply “come and see” for yourself and engage in some learning, prayer, community, and discernment. 

TRCIA classes meet Tuesday evenings at 7 pm at the Mother of Good Counsel. 

There will be a Come & See on August 24th that will take place on Facebook Live.  Come and get some of your questions answered about Catholicism. 

Our first RCIA class  will be Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at 7 p.m. in a hybrid format of in person and  via zoom.  Please email lhelfrich@cdlex.org to join us for RCIA.
