Once again, our parish will be hosting its RCIA program. The letters RCIA stand for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. The RCIA is the process through which adults are gradually introduced to the Roman Catholic Faith and way of life. The RCIA program is for three categories of people:
The goal of the RCIA is to foster a personal encounter and intimate union with Jesus Christ and his Holy Church. This goal is obtained through education, practicing the Catholic faith, and the reception of the three sacraments of Christian initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist. The RCIA will meet weekly on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 p.m., starting September 9th. It will be hosted at the St. Anne Parish Office (1104 N. Brinton Ave., Dixon, IL 61021). If you or someone you know living in Dixon is interested in joining our parish RCIA program, please fill out one of the RCIA Registration Forms above and mail it or hand it in to the St. Anne Parish Office. So that we can order the correct number of material, please turn in your form as soon as possible or no later than Tuesday, September 1st. If you have any questions, or if you are interested in being part of our RCIA teaching team, please call: (815) 288-3131. We will be using the Symbolon series which you can preview here.
