The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is the normative process by which people are now brought into full communion with the Catholic Church. Modeled after how people were brought into the Church in the first centuries, R.C.I.A. helps inquirers prayerfully, intentionally, and gradually discern if they are called into the Catholic Faith.

Regular classes will be on Thursday evenings, beginning on September 28th, from 7:00-8:30 PM in Room 305 of Holy Family Academy.

This program is for:

  • -Anyone sensing a call to explore the Catholic faith 
  • -Adult Catholics who have not yet received the sacrament of Confirmation and seek to complete their sacraments of initiation
  • -Those who are interested in coming to know their Catholic faith in a more systematic way 
  • -Anyone who wishes to serve as a potential sponsor for one entering into full communion with the Catholic Church 

If you or anyone you know is interested in this program of instruction in the Catholic faith, please contact John Hartnett, Director of Faith Formation, at 952.999.4822 or at jhartnett@hfamn.org.
