Do You Want to Join the Roman Catholic Church?

The Communion of Parishes churches provide a preparation program called RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) for people who wish to join the Catholic church.  If you are thinking of joining the church please contact the Main Office: Phone:519-631-3052 or 519-631-3640  or E-mail:holyangels@dol.ca or stannesparish@dol.ca

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process for adults inquiring and seeking initiation into the Catholic Church.  After hearing God’s word, these adults come forward to accept and understand the mission of Christ and the truths of the Catholic Church.  Weekly gatherings consist of prayer, catechesis (teaching), reflection, and sharing as we come to discover where God is calling each in RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation).The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults models the practice of the early Church in which unbaptized individuals, after a lengthy period of spiritual preparation, were received into the Church through Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. The process is open to all those not baptized, those baptized, those baptized in another Christian faith, and those baptized Catholic but who have never completed their initiation. The RCIA is not only a journey of faith for the person but for the entire community.  It is through renewal and conversion within the entire community that provides an example of Christian living for those inquiring into the faith.  Within the community, sponsors are called forth to support and accompany the candidate on their journey.  The prayerful support of the whole community is essential to the spiritual welfare of the inquirer.
