The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a program for people interested in the Catholic faith, whether they are non-Catholics thinking about becoming Catholic, or Catholics who wish to learn more and/or embrace the Catholic faith. The program starts with a period of instruction and progresses into a more in-depth experience of Catholicism and then invites participants into a process of initiation. Often this includes the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism (for those not yet baptized), Confirmation, and the Holy Eucharist.
RCIA at St. John the Apostle is offered in English, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
RCIA classes are in-person at the parish hall but in light of the continuing coronavirus situation, online participation via Zoom can be arranged.
English RCIA: Wednesday evening from 7 pm to 8:15 pm
Mandarin RCIA: Tuesday morning from 10:30 am to 11:30 am
Cantonese RCIA: Saturday afternoon from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm
If necessary regular individual instruction at another date and time is also available.
