The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is the process established by the Catholic Church after Vatican II to help non-Catholics who are interested in living their lives on earth as Catholic Christians. R.C.I.A. is an organized system of catechetical instruction presented by priests and laity of the parish. The R.C.I.A. program at Blessed Sacrament Parish began September 9, 2012, and will be held on Sunday mornings beginning at the 9:00 a.m. Mass with dismissal of the group to the School Library following the homily. The class ends around 10:30. The parish priests and R.C.I.A. team members offer scriptural reflection, instruction and discussion. Each inquirer is matched with a member of the parish who acts as a sponsor. The Rites are celebrated on scheduled Sundays during the 9:00am Mass at our parish and, for those who are led by the Holy Spirit to join the Church, the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and the Holy Eucharist) are celebrated at the Easter Vigil Mass on March 30, 2013. R.C.I.A. gives members of Blessed Sacrament Parish a personal opportunity to evangelize as sponsors or as catechetical team members. For those who want information about the teachings of the Catholic Church, or who want to join the Church, R.C.I.A. offers a varied program of education, scriptural reflection, prayer, discernment, and community.
