CCD classes are offered for children on Sundays at 10:00 AM. Please inquire by calling the parish office to register your child. Everyone is required to register, even if your child has been enrolled in our CCD program before. Please bring a copy of your child(ren) baptism certificate(s) when registering.
RCIA, which stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is the process for bringing into the Catholic Church both those who have never been baptized (Catechumens) and those who were baptized in a non-Catholic Church (Candidates for Full Communion in the Catholic Church). RCIA is also the best way for adult baptized Catholics who have not completed the sacraments of initiation – Eucharist and Confirmation to be received into a life of apostolic action and service. It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass.
But RCIA is not just a “class,” it is a gradual introduction to the customs, beliefs, practices, and devotions of Catholicism. Those who participate will be guided by teachers and assisted by mentors to understand the richness of Catholic worship and teaching. The RCIA program at Holy Rosary Church is held every Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact the Rectory at (201) 795-0120.
