Adult Religious Formation (RCIA)


THE R.C.I.A. PROGRAM is formally known as the RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS.  This program is specifically a process for adults who wish to explore the possibility of joining the Catholic Church and who wish to receive the Sacraments of Initiation:  Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist.  The R.C.I.A. program is designed for adults who are unbaptized, baptized in another Christian faith, or for baptized Catholics who have never received First Eucharist or Confirmation.

Adults who are interested will meet weekly at St. Anthony Church beginning in mid-September.  Together, we will read and learn about the Scriptures and about the teachings of the Catholic Church.  Through the course of studies and through sharing our own faith experiences, we will enter into a journey of awareness as we discover God’s presence and Spirit working in our lives.

If you are interested in the R.C.I.A. program, please contact the parish office at
860-583-1349.  A  St. Anthony R.C.I.A. team member will contact you regarding any questions or registration information.  There is no cost for the program.  Thank you for your interest.
