Are you interested in the Catholic Faith? Santa Clara Church invites you to come and see.
The RCIA is process of spiritual formation for those who seek Christian Baptism, and for those who are already baptized in a Christian church, and wish to become Catholic. In the RCIA we offer instruction in the Catholic faith, formation in Christian prayer, and fellowship with the Church community. All of this prepares us to be fully initiated into the Catholic Church, and to be fully alive in the grace and love of Jesus Christ.
Beginning in the first week of August, we will hold Inquiry meetings, kind of a "come and see" session to get to know Jesus and the Catholic Church, and to learn about the process of the RCIA. Attendance at these sessions is required if you are considering the RCIA for the coming year. We will meet on Sunday mornings at the Chapel in El Rio. A full calendar will be made available by the first week of June. If you are interested in joining us this fall, please reach out to our RCIA Coordinator, Mr. Michael Parks, to introduce yourself and share your contact information. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (805) 330-8244.
