The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
Are you interested in learning more about the Catholic Church? Are you answering a
call to become Catholic but are not sure how or where to begin? If you are, please

At St. Joseph's Catholic Church, RCIA Meetings are on Sundays in the Marian Chapel of the Main Church from 9-11
a.m. and includes participation in the 10:00 a.m. Mass Liturgy of the Word.

The first meeting and formal start to the RCIA Class of 2020 will be on Sunday, September 15.


Are you a confirmed Catholic who has questions about your faith? Would you like to
be refreshed on major aspects of your faith? NEW THIS YEAR: St. Joseph’s is offering
the opportunity for any parishioner to come and REFRESH his/her understanding of our
Catholic Faith. The REFRESH group will join the RCIA catechumens and candidates on
Sundays at 9:00 a.m. in the Marian Chapel of the Main Church to receive instruction
about our Catholic Faith. Our very own Father John Sollee will be teaching many of
these classes. The REFRESH group will then be dismissed at 10:00 a.m. to give them
the opportunity to attend the 10:00 a.m. Mass. The first meeting will begin on Sunday,
September 22.



To enroll in either RCIA or Refresh, or if you have any questions, please contact Mike
and Michelle Peters at [email protected] or 904-710-2508.
