Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The primary goal of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is to help those interested in the Catholic faith to learn about what it means to be “catholic” and grow closer to God as they journey through life.

The RCIA is a spiritual journey during which catechumens (those not baptized) and candidates (those baptized, but not yet Catholic) are assisted in their quest to experience conversion and spiritual growth.

Our role as the RCIA team is to accompany inquirers through the RCIA process and help the Holy Spirit touch and change the lives of catechumens, candidates, sponsors and the parish. We want to equip people to continue to grow closer to God in & through the Catholic Church.

Please join us on this journey which starts in September. Please contact the church office at 304-253-3695, email church@stfrancis-wv.org, or Deacon Harry Evans at 304-252-0561, email hevans@dwc.org to RSVP or request additional information.
