Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
We invite you to look deeper into the Catholic faith. Holy Family Parish will soon begin a new journey in faith to share the richness of the Catholic Church and our parish family. We invite you to learn what the Church teaches, and be introduced to some of our parish members who love the Lord and would consider it a privilege to get to know you.
These gatherings are for inquirers and are open to people who are unbaptized, as well as those who are baptized Christians from Protestant or Evangelical backgrounds. They are also open to baptized Catholics who have not received the sacraments of Holy Communion and Confirmation. Sessions are held on Tuesday 7:00-8:30p.m. in room 1 in the lower church hall and begin Tuesday, September 28th.
Please contact Barbie Byrne if you are interested, have questions or would like further information 330-688-6412 ext. 272, or [email protected].
