Followers of Love

RCIA - Followers of Love

Almost all churches run a program called RCIA, which stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation for the Adults. In our church, this program is called "Followers of Love". They are certain differences between how that program is organized in every parish, yet the point is the same: completion of the initiation process by receiving First Communion and Confirmation, or just embracing this process with the reception of Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation. You can also join the program if you are already a Christian and feel that the Catholic tradition is the one you would like to become a part of.

This year's program will be conducted online on the Zoom platform. We will begin in November and will have meetings online once a week (up to 1 hour at a time).

The conclusion of the Program will be the reception of Sacraments on Easter Vigil, Saturday, April 3 at 8:00 PM.

If you are interested in joining the Program, please fill out the form below. You will be contacted afterward.
