2019 Annual Parish Retreat

Religious Education

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.)

Once again this year Immaculate Conception Parish will facilitate the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) for adults who wish to participate in a process of formation to receive the sacraments of the Catholic Church during the next Easter season. Adult non-Christians can prepare for full initiation into the Catholic Church through Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist (Communion) at the Easter Vigil. Adult non-Catholic Christians can prepare to be received into the Catholic Church and make Confirmation and Eucharist at Easter. Adult baptized Catholics who have not yet received Confirmation and Eucharist can also prepare for them at Easter. Also, adult baptized Catholics who wish to complete initiation can prepare to receive Confirmation at Pentecost next year. If you or someone you know wishes to inquire into this process, please contact Fr. Bill McLaughlin at the rectory office at (718) 728-1613. Weekly sessions of prayer, study, and sharing the Scriptures will begin in early October. Also, the R.C.I.A. is being offered in Spanish (contact Deacon Elkin Tamayo) and for high school age young adults (contact Mrs. Marylyn Crum). All inquiries can be made at the Rectory Office.
