The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a learning process designed to help interested persons explore the Catholic tradition. It is open to both unbaptized persons and those who were baptized into another faith tradition who wish to explore Catholic beliefs and practices. This formation process begins in September. Acceptance into the Roman Catholic faith, and into the St. Richard faith community, takes place during the holy days of the Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday). Call John Clarke in the Parish Office at 637-8374 for more information.
