RCIA

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) allows adults requesting baptism or who were baptized in another faith tradition to seek Full Communion in the Catholic Church. This process also welcomes adults, baptized Catholic, who are seeking to receive the Sacraments of Eucharist and/or Confirmation. The period of preparation is usually nine months. 

If you are interested in joining the RCIA process, please contact the parish office to learn more.

Initiation for Adults

Religious faith formation is a lifelong process of growth and education that takes place in the parish and in the home. The goal of faith formation is two-fold: the personal growth in knowledge and the mission of the Catholic faith; and the spiritual growth of each individual as a disciple of Jesus Christ who shares the mission. Faith Formation provides parish members and those being received into the Church with the necessary sacramental preparation. This is accomplished through the CCD/PREP program for children and the RCIA for adults. However, faith formation is on-going. As a parish, St. Augustine supports and promotes the spiritual growth of all our members with the celebration of the sacraments, our liturgies, prayer, seasonal programs, outreach opportunities as well as opportunities for involvement in the life of the parish community. We encourage and support a stewardship of time, talent and treasure: sharing the gifts we receive from God.
