Rite of Christian Initiation For Adults

The R.C.I.A. process is available for those students who are thinking of becoming Catholic and for Catholics who wish to receive First Communion or Confirmation. R.C.I.A. begins in September of the Fall Semester and meets weekly. Participants must start the program together in the early fall semester.


The R.C.I.A. experience has been an enriching and constant reminder that Jesus is part of every aspect of my life,” said Leslie Cameron ‘15C.  “My actions follow Jesus’ example of living justly.  It has been especially encouraging to take these steps with other students in my St. John’s family.”

“We are because He is, “said Jackie Gonize ‘16C. “I’m excited to know God, love God and serve God.”

Come and pray with our Sunday 5:30pm Mass faith community during this sacred journey of faith.
