~ Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults ~

"Are you thinking of becoming Catholic, or do you know someone who is?  The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, or “RCIA”, is the process by which adults come into full communion with the Catholic Church.  If you feel God is calling you to this conversion of heart, please join us on this journey to a closer relationship with God and His Church. 

Weekly formation classes* are scheduled to begin in September and will run through Lent. Sacraments will be received
at the Easter Vigil Mass to be held on Holy Saturday 2022.
Adult Confirmation classes* will also begin in September for anyone 18 or older, who has not received this sacrament and would like to. Through Confirmation, the Holy Spirit strengthens the graces we received at Baptism bringing us closer to Christ and better preparing us to face the daily challenges of Christian life. Upon completion, the candidate will be eligible to receive the sacrament of Confirmation at the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Hartford, CT. At this time, we have not yet been assigned a date. All classes will be held in person at the St. Therese Parish Center (555 Middletown Avenue/North Haven). Social distancing will be in place, and you will be required to wear a mask. Please call Lisa Bilodeau
at (203) 288-4818 with any questions, or for more information.
*Please note: a $50.00 registration fee is required for all candidates for either of these formation classes, payable at the first class. Cash or checks payable to St. Elizabeth of the Trinity Parish will be accepted.
