Welcome to St Mark’s United Methodist Church, a place where faith and community converge. As believers, we understand the significance of nurturing and deepening our spiritual connections. That's why we are proud to offer the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program, a transformative journey that invites individuals into the Catholic faith.
The Meaning of RCIA
At St Mark’s United Methodist Church, we firmly believe that faith is a personal and intimate experience. RCIA, an ancient process founded in the early Church, allows individuals to discern and explore the Catholic faith within a supportive community. Whether you are a catechumen seeking baptism, a candidate desiring full communion in the Church, or simply seeking to enrich your faith, RCIA welcomes you.
What to Expect
Our RCIA program is a dynamic and comprehensive experience tailored to meet the needs of each participant. Through a combination of engaging classes, spiritual practices, and meaningful group discussions, we aim to facilitate an authentic encounter with God's love and guidance.
The RCIA program is rooted in the scriptures, allowing participants to explore the teachings, traditions, and stories that form the bedrock of the Catholic faith. From Genesis to Revelation, we delve deep into the richness of the Bible, providing a solid foundation for spiritual growth and understanding.
Central to the RCIA journey are the sacraments, sacred rituals that help nourish our faith. Through the sacraments of baptism, confirmation, and Holy Eucharist, participants are united with God's grace and enveloped in the community of believers. These milestones mark significant moments on the path to full communion with the Church.
Our RCIA program is committed to nurturing the spiritual growth of each individual. Through prayer, meditation, and contemplation, participants cultivate a deeper relationship with God. Alongside core teachings, we encourage personal exploration and reflection, allowing each person to develop a vibrant and personal faith.
Community and Support
One of the most beautiful aspects of the RCIA program is the sense of belonging and camaraderie it fosters. St Mark’s United Methodist Church is a vibrant community that values fellowship and shared ministry. As an RCIA participant, you will be warmly embraced by a supportive network of fellow seekers, mentors, and parishioners. Together, we walk the path of faith.
