The Rite of Christian Initiation“R.C.I.A.” is the way in which the Catholic Church guides those wishing to become Catholic, as well as those wanting to learn more about the Catholic faith. At St. Joseph Old Cathedral, the RCIA group meets once per week, with the exception of holidays, in the education building to the west of the Church. The climax of the process comes when those who choose to do so are confirmed and baptized (if necessary) into the Catholic Church at Easter Vigil.

This year our Sunday (2013-2014) evening sessions begin promptly at 5:15 p.m. and close promptly at 6:30 p.m. Speakers may include our pastor, one of the facility members or a carefully selected guest speaker. Each week brings a new topic concerning facets of conversion, the Catholic faith and the journey of our inquirers as they grow closer to God.
