The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (for those 17 years or older) is presented at St. Michael in English and in Spanish beginning after Labor Day and
concluding at Pentecost, seven weeks after Easter.
Classes in English take place on Tuesday evenings in the Social Hall upstairs beginning at 7pm and concluding by 8:15pm. Classes begin Sept. 15th, 2020. This year we will broadcast RCIA on our Facebook Live page which you can connect directly to at our www.saintmichael.cc website. This is being made available to those who may work in the evening or not have transportation. Classes in Spanish take place on Sunday morning’s beginning at 7am. RCIA is for a variety of people including non-Catholics who are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith and becoming Catholic. RCIA also is for Catholics who have been baptized but may have never received the sacraments of Holy Communion and/or Confirmation.
If you are unsure in some way whether God is calling and reaching out to you, I would just encourage you to attend RCIA and allow the Holy Spirit to dwell
within you, and see where your holy encounter with Jesus takes you. Deacon Ken Lampert coordinates the English classes and Indalecio Salazar coordinates the classes in Spanish. There is no cost to enroll in RCIA. There are a few items you may need to purchase for the English class including the New Catholic Answer Bible by Fireside Publishing, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and a three-ringed binder to place the handouts of the topics covered weekly you will receive. The Catholic Bible and Catechism are available for purchase in the St. Michael Gift Shop located downstairs which is open after the Saturday and Sunday weekly Masses. You can also purchase these thru amazon.com. Catholics who have received all the Sacraments of Initiation including Baptism, Holy Communion, and Confirmation who may have been away from the Church for a while and would like a refresher on the Catholic faith, are always welcome to attend the RCIA class or to watch through Facebook Live
