Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Do you know any adults who may be thinking about becoming a Catholic or completing their sacraments?  Lynn Catholic Collaborative offers a welcoming, gentle and prayer-filled path to a (deeper) relationship with Jesus and to full-fledged membership in the Catholic Church. So that they can find out more about this process (which is known as the RCIA), please urge them to speak to one of our pastoral staff or to call the Collaborative Office. Although the RCIA is an on-going process, we will be meeting formally later in the fall. Now is a good time for you to let us know of possible candidates for RCIA.

Who is RCIA for?

1. Persons in need of Baptism.

2. Persons baptized in another Christian tradition who desire to become Catholic.

3. Persons baptized Catholic in need of First Communion and/or Confirmation.

Classes Start in September. Please contact us for more information.
