Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, (RCIA), soon to be called The Order of Christian Initiation of Adults, (OCIA), is a pathway to conversion and a means of entry into life in Christ through the Catholic Church for adults and teens who are coming from other faith experiences or from non-faith backgrounds. It also provides a means of complete Initiation into the Faith for those who were Baptized but who never received the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and/or Confirmation. The RCIA experience at Saint Christopher Church includes weekly group meetings with one or more Catechists from late September through Pentecost Sunday, along with regular Sunday Mass attendance.

Those interested in experiencing this conversion and/or completion process, or those discerning to serve as Catechists (Instructors) should contact the Parish Office at 516-223-0723.
