RCIA Information

The Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is an opportunity for those who are not Catholic to join the Catholic church. The program consists of instruction to help non-Catholics better understand the Catholic faith, with the opportunity to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Communion at the Easter Vigil.

Our parish RCIA meets Sunday at 10AM in the church hall. Please call the parish office at 613 738-1943 for further information.
