RCIA (RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS)
Main Contact: Fr. Thomas Molini 636-532-3304
Ascension’s RCIA is for anyone who desires a journey of faith and an investigation into the truths of the Catholic Christian tradition and for anyone seriously considering joining the Catholic Church. This includes anyone previously baptized in other Christian denominational churches and wishing to complete their initiation into the Catholic Church through Confirmation and First Eucharist; or for anyone not baptized and interested in learning about the Catholic faith and possibly joining the Catholic Church.
The RCIA is presented by a team of experienced presenters, including all the parish priests and permanent deacons. We also have a support team that offers welcoming hospitality and prayerful support. We usually meet once a week beginning in September and conclude two weeks following Easter.
Some of the topics we cover during this journey include: Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, Jesus Christ and the Holy Trinity, The Resurrection of the Body and Life Everlasting, Catholic Morality (Understanding the 10 Commandments in our lives today), The Seven Sacraments with special focus on the Eucharist and the Mass. We talk about how Christ is truly present in a sacramental marriage and how forgiveness and reconciliation are part of the plan for eternal life. There are many other engaging topics that we discuss. Each night we welcome questions and dialogue.
We welcome you to contact us for more information or to sign up!
