- Study and reflect upon the teachings of Scriptures
- Proclaim the Word of God
- Learn about the rich heritage and traditions of the Church
- Become familiar with forms of personal and liturgical prayer
- Meet members of the Parish Community and witness their daily living of their faith
- Focus on the teachings and experience of the Church and prepare to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and The Eucharist (during the Easter season).
You can pick up an application in our Parish Office or you may download it from the link below. Everyone is welcome to participate in the process with questions, insights and his or her faith story in a warm, accepting setting. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is experienced through a process of five phases. There is no set length of time for the RCIA process. It depends on each individual’s journey in faith. However, OLPH's RCIA Program lasts one year and begins in September and ends during the week of Pentecost.
