RCIA -> OCIA    

The name has been changed, but the program has not.  OCIA is for anyone who has not been baptized or fully initiated into the Catholic Church through Confirmation and First Communion.  It is now the ORDER of Christian Initiation for Adults.  A book with the new rites is in the works, but nothing has been published yet.  For those who would like to receive these sacraments, or anyone who has questions about the Catholic Church and this whole process, please contact Carla…..  Classes will begin on Thursday, September 28, at 6:30 pm. In the Fireside Room.  It is FREE!
