Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA)

Welcome! We are very happy to help you to discern if the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is for you.  Here is a brief description.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults  provides an opportunity for adults who are seeking full communion with the Church to learn about the Catholic faith.

Our Lady of Angels offers RCIA weekly classes from September until after Easter. If you are unable to make these meetings due to work or other circumstances, we will work with you to find a way that works for you.

Full communion for catechumens (not yet baptized) and candidates (already baptized in the Christian faith) occurs at the Easter Vigil. Catholic spouses and sponsors are welcome to attend the classes. Those interested in learning more about RCIA can email Deacon Mark Yantek myantek@olangels.org  or call the Parish Office at 216-252-2332.

In the Fall we have a meeting for those who are interested in joining the church as well.  Watch the bulletin for that date.
