The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is for anyone age seven or older seeking to be baptized and/or enter into the Catholic Church or for adult Catholics seeking completion of the Sacraments of Initiation (e.g., Confirmation or Eucharist). The Church welcomes those who want to join themselves to Christ through the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and First Eucharist. We also welcome Christians from other Christian denominations who are already baptized and wish to complete their sacraments of initiation in the Catholic Church. The RCIA journey is a time of inquiry, learning, prayer, and community as a candidate discerns God’s call in their life.
2020-2021 RCIA Calendar and Syllabus
Corpus Christi partners with St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in the RCIA process. This includes sharing staff leaders, facilities, and small group sessions. For the 2020-2021 preparation year, all RCIA sessions will meet at Saint Rose of Lima Parish Center, located at 2048 Hamline Ave, Roseville. RCIA meets on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 PM.
Corpus Christi is always in need of parishioners who are willing to share the experience of their faith with others by becoming a sponsor in the RCIA journey. Sponsors participate in all small group sessions and rites with our Catechumens.
