RCIA | Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is a process for welcoming new members into the Roman Catholic Church.
The R.C.I.A. program begins preparing candidates from October through the Easter Vigil. After a period of listening to Scripture, studying the Church's teachings, praying and participating in liturgical rites, prospective Catholics spend the Lenten period intensely focused on final preparation for receiving the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation, which takes place during the Easter Vigil.
Please contact the parish office at (414) 258-8821 if you would like to participate in our RCIA program or if you would like to volunteer to assist with the program.
RCIA | Come and See
The Rite of Christian Initiation is for those interested in learning about the Catholic faith and possible conversion. RCIA is a process to “Come and See” what the Catholic community believes and practices in regard to our relationship with God and membership in the Church. The process includes some learning experience, time for questions and clarification. There are opportunities to experience various means of prayer and ways to participate in the community of Saint Jude. The process is one of freedom of choice. You are invited to join the RCIA program.
Also, any adult Catholics who have not been confirmed and would like to prepare for the sacrament, please call the numbers listed below. RCIA classes begin in early October.
If you are in any way interested, please contact:
