RCIA Program for Adults
Would you like to become Catholic? Looking for deeper
understanding of the Faith?
NOW IS THE TIME TO REGISTER! IT TAKES ONLY A SIMPLE PHONE CALL!
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a six-month long religious instruction program and
conversion process leading to full participation in the Catholic Church for the non-baptized as well as
those already validly baptized in separated Christian churches. It is also a preparation for adult Catholics
who have never been confirmed, and an excellent renewal experience for all Catholics, especially those
returning to the Church. It is an exciting personal and communal spiritual journey leading to the transfor-
mation of mind and spirit.
All adults who need one or all of the “Sacraments of Initiation” (Baptism, confirmation, and the Eucha-
rist) are invited to join this exciting program, which begins Sunday, September 16. We meet every Sunday
morning in the National Shrine Conference Center from 10:30-12:30 until Easter. Learning real facts about
the Catholic Faith through the combined lenses of philosophy, theology, Scripture and history is a most
exciting and challenging experience. (No exams!)
The RCIA is a friendly process that begins with a time of honest inquiry and review of topics like the
existence of God, nature of Man, mystery of creation, origin of evil and suffering, and the life of Jesus
(Incarnation, Passion & Death, Resurrection, Ascension, and Pentecost) At the end of this initial period, if
candidates for Baptism express their intention to become Catholic, they are accepted into the order of
Catechumens, and along with all the other participants are anointed with the Sign of the Cross, receive
special blessings, and a Bible. This is a critical time of nurturing, deep spiritual growth, and continuing per-
sonal conversion for all in the parish.
On the first Sunday of Lent those seeking to become Catholics visit the Blessed Sacrament Cathedral
to appear before Cardinal Maida as a formal expression of their intention to become full members of the
Church. This period of Lent will be filled with special blessings called scrutinies, and become a time of in-
tense personal reflection and prayer. At the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday evening, all will receive those
sacraments which will bring them into full communion with the Catholic Church. A brief period following
Easter provides an opportunity for shared reflections on the journey to faith and explores ways to help live
as an active Catholic.
Call the rectory office at 248.541.4122 or call John LaCroix directly at 248.374.9045. You may also sim-
ply come to the Parish Conference Center on any Sunday Morning beginning September 16 at 10:15 am.
All are welcome. Bring a friend! Come see where time well spent will lead. Be not afraid! It’s a great trip
and we never walk alone.

CSA Minute—Office for Faith Formation/Catechetics
Catechetical leaders from throughout the Archdiocese of Detroit gathered at Sacred Heart Major Semi-
nary last week for “Casting Bread Upon the Waters: Nurturing the Gift of Spirituality.”
Gifts to the Catholic Services Appeal help fund this annual gathering for catechetical leaders. This year’s
session focused on the spirituality of catechetical leaders and explored how their relationship with God is es-
sential to their mission.
In addition, the fall gathering offered important strategies for supporting and nurturing spirituality in cate-
chists, and for helping them recognize how important their spiritual development is in enabling them to evan-
gelize and catechize adults, youth and children.
