RCIA (Sacrament Preparation for Adults)

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults process is a series of carefully planned stages, marked by liturgical rites in the presence of the Good Shepherd community, in which new Catholics embark on and join us in a continuing and deepening conversion of faith and discipleship. The RCIA takes the distinctive history and spiritual needs of each person into account. Volunteers are needed in many areas to provide support to the RCIA catechumens. For more information contact Rich or Sharon Dorricott at sdorricott@frontier.com.  

Good Shepherd Parish RCIA begins in August!  You are invited to join this year’s class of adults desiring baptism, Holy Communion, and/or confirmation, on the road to full reception in the Catholic Church.
