St. Joseph Catholic Church

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

RCIA, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is the process which adults learn about the Catholic Faith.  It is a time of discernment before becoming a member of the Church.  We begin this process in the fall and meet weekly learning various aspects of our faith.   The celebration into the Church is at the Easter Vigil in the spring.  Our classes are presented by various members of our parish.  You will have a sponsor attending with you who will be your support and walk with you on this journey.  You are free to have a practicing Catholic that you know or we have members we can provide who will be there for you.  We tape all of our classes so if you have to be absent you may come in the following week to make up a class.

If interested please read over the Welcome letter link to the left and fill out the questionnaire and scan and e-mail/fax/or mail it back to us at 5901 Flint, Shawnee, KS 66203.

We look forward to meeting you.  Feel free to contact us at 913-631-8923 and ask for Beth our Director of Christian Formation.
