RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS AND TEENS
Welcome to the RCIA Program at St. William Parish!
The RCIA program is designed to aid adults and teens to learn more about the Catholic faith and what it means to be a Christian in today’s world. Upon completion of the RCIA program, you will receive the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, the Eucharist and Confirmation. For those who are already baptized – either through the Catholic Church or other Christian faith traditions you will receive the Sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation. Your initiation into the Roman Catholic Church will take place on Saturday, April 3, 2021 at the Easter Vigil.
Registration for the RCIA program will be on Sunday, September 8th, 2020 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM in the lobby of St. William School at 2559 N. Sayre. Sessions will begin on Monday, September 23, 2020 and will continue until Monday, March 29, 2021 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM.
Please complete the required application with a copy of your baptismal certificate (if applicable) and bring it with you to the September 8th registration in the school lobby or it can be dropped off at the Parish Office located in the rectory prior to the registration date. If you are under the age of 18, please have a parent or legal guardian complete the Parental Permission form. If you choose to drop it off at the parish office, please be aware that you still must attend the September 8th registration to obtain pertinent information prior to our first session on Monday, September 23rd. If you have any concerns, questions or have missed the registration date, do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to accompanying you on this journey to the Catholic faith!
