RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

St. Cecilia's parish in Ashland, Massachusetts has a team of parishioners ready to help those interested in learning more about the Catholic church. Our team helps Christian people looking to convert to Catholicism, people who have not been baptized and want to join a Christian church, and individuals who were raised Catholic, but never received confirmation.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, or RCIA, is the process we follow to bring new members into the Church. The RCIA team leads a series of informal classes and other activities culminating with full entry into the Catholic Church during our Easter Vigil mass. Fr. Cornell leads our RCIA and is always available to talk to those interested in entering this enlightening and enjoyable program.  More information about our program can be found on our Adult Faith Formation page.

Anyone who is interested in RCIA, can call the rectory at 508-881-1107. Our sessions start each year in late September. Even those who have not decided if they want to become Catholic are welcome to join us to help make the decision.

Those interested in becoming instructors will begin by joining the conversations we have during class and then can take up the leadership of some topics as they feel comfortable.  

Class Schedule: Every other Monday evening at 7:00PM from late September to just after Easter.

Instructors:  Joel Farrell, Janet Farrell, Michael Joosten.
