RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) is a spiritual and educational process for those who are interested in becoming Catholic. 

This includes: 1) People who have not been baptized (called catechumens), 2) People who have been baptized in another Christian church who now seek full Communion with the Catholic Church (called candidates), as well as 3) Baptized Catholics who seek to complete their initiation through the sacraments of Eucharist and/or Confirmation.

RCIA gathers after the 9:30 Mass on Sundays in the Parish Center West Room. It is not too late to join! Please contact Fr. Tim Roth for more details: frtim@samparish.org. Invite someone you know to explore God's great love for them through the beauty of the Catholic faith.
