RCIA 2019-2020

If you have been thinking about the Catholic Faith but have been waiting for someone to invite you to take the first step, this is your invitation to begin your journey at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 715 N. Lapeer Road, Lake Orion, Michigan 48362.

If you wish to celebrate Baptism in the Catholic Church, we invite you to participate in RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). This is the Catholic Church’s official process for those seeking Baptism. All those taking this journey meet with our parish team on Wednesday Evenings from 7-9pm in Marian Hall. The formal process consists of a period of Inquiry, a Catechetical period during which one learns specifically about the Catholic Church and a period of Spiritual Formation during Lent. The Celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation takes place at the Easter Vigil. And then, of course, the journey of discipleship continues throughout one’s lifetime. 

Perhaps you are already baptized in another faith tradition, but wish to enter full communion with the Catholic Church. We invite you to join us in the RCIA journey so that you can learn about the rich teachings and traditions of Catholicism.  

If you have been baptized Catholic but have not received the Sacraments of Eucharist and/or Confirmation, this process would deepen your understanding as an adult and is highly recommended.
