The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a spiritual journey of faith and conversion to seek and find the living God. The RCIA is a time of discovery and preparation in building relationship with God and His Church. The process includes a series of Periods, Steps, and Liturgical rites within this journey. This journey is not taken alone. The entire RCIA Staff, a Sponsor, the Pastor, and the Holy Spirit will instruct and guide the catechumen’s faith formation. At the acceptable time, the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation) are conferred bringing the catechumen into full participation, community, and union with the Church. Life-long continuous growth, formation, and witness is necessary to strengthen and persevere in faith; to live as an intentional disciple of Christ, for the glory of God.
For adults who have been baptized and are seeking to receive Eucharist and Confirmation, the same process is used.
For more information, contact Bill Kenney, RCIA Coordinator or Marie Sheridan.

Funeral Liturgy Pre-Planning

Many people really struggle with death and don’t even want to talk about funerals. For people of faith, it is a normal and expected part of our journey to eternal life with Jesus. Are you interested in picking out your preferred scripture readings and music for your own funeral—this can be comforting to you and a huge help to your family. I will meet with anyone interested to help you with the planning process. You can begin by picking up a packet either in the parish office or on the Christian Service table in Higgins Hall. Take it home and spend some time with it and then call or email to set up an appointment to review your plan. ~ Marie Sheridan, St. Agnes Funeral Coordinator
