rite_of_christian_initiation_of_adultsRCIA: Are you an adult in search of a deeper relationship with God?  Have you been attending Mass at a Catholic church for years, but have never gotten around to joining?  Would you like to be baptized?  We, at Ascension offer an opportunity to answers these questions and more.  We call it the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or the RCIA.  It consists of meeting with other inquirers to pray and share questions and concerns of faith.  It is also a time to learn about the tradition and history of the Catholic Church, while experiencing our beliefs and worship.  You will be connected to a community that worships together, seeks to serve others and joins in fellowship.

Classes begin next September.  If you think you might be interested or know someone who may be interested in the RCIA classes, please feel free to call Jocelyne Carrigan at the contact information listed above.
