RCIA—Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the usual way in which adults and teens who are not Catholic become members of the Catholic Church. Those seeking to study and learn more about the Catholic faith, along with those wishing to become Catholic gather weekly beginning in September on Thursday evenings.

This spiritual journey of inquiry continues until Easter Saturday evening, when the catechumens and candidates are welcomed into the Catholic Church through the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation.

Those wishing to begin the RCIA process should contact Michele Blate at 330.499.2201 ext. 331 to discuss the requirements, register for the program and have a brief interview. We welcome all those who are interested in becoming Catholic to learn more about the RCIA program at St. Paul Church!
