Becoming Catholic (RCIA)
Thank you for showing interest in the Catholic Faith! The St. Jude Parish Community warmly welcomes you. We want you to feel at home in our midst, and to find a comfortable atmosphere in which to seek answers to your questions about the faith and teachings of the Catholic Church.
The RCIA is a process by which a person becomes initiated into the Catholic Church. It is a journey into a deeper relationship with Christ and His Church…it is becoming Church. At weekly gatherings, faith is experienced and teachings of the Church are shared.
Together, as a community, we travel the path that leads to the Easter Vigil and the beginning of renewed life as a Catholic Christian. If you or someone you know would like to participate in RCIA, contact one of the following
We will meet on Monday evenings at 7:00 PM in the Church Meeting Room beginning in September 14th, 2015. All are welcome even after the sessions begin. If you have any questions, if you wish to participate in the RCIA, or if you would like to become a member of our RCIA team, please contact Fr. Jeffrey Rott at (215) 822-0179, ext. 262 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
