RCIA

 

 

Our Lady of Grace Parish welcomes all those seeking full communion with the Catholic Church.  The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a program of catechesis to better understand Jesus Christ and his bride, the Catholic Church. 

RCIA is a process for bringing into the Catholic Church both those who have never been baptized (Catechumens) and those who were baptized in a non-Catholic Church (Candidates for Full Communion in the Catholic Church). RCIA also includes adult baptized Catholics who have not completed the Sacraments of Initiation – Confirmation and Holy Eucharist.

We will meet each Mondays at 2:00pm or 7:00pm beginning on Sep 11th and will run until Holy Saturday Easter Vigil on Mar 31st.

If you are interested in RCIA, we would love to have you! If you want some more information before signing up, please fill out the Inquiry Form and we will be in contact with you as soon as possible or you can contact Cindy Wood at cindy@gracewepray.org or (803) 283-4969 ext 107.
