RCIA

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

At Holy Redeemer, we have a year-round RCIA process, which means you may contact us at any time you are called to join us in your journey of faith.  
We ask that you make an initial meeting with the Faith Formation office to discuss the process and what it would look like for you personally.

If you are interested in RCIA or have any questions, contact Laura Rodrigues (laurar@holyredeemervanc.org) in the Faith Formation office to set up an appointment.
