Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Thinking of joining the Roman Catholic Church? Great!
Is it a little overwhelming? Where do you begin?
Well, you just begin from where you are now!
Many adults entering the Catholic Church, or those just thinking about it, follow a process known as the RCIA — the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

If you, a friend, or family member is interested in joining the Catholic Church or would like to find out more about Catholic beliefs and practices, please call the Parish office at 717-838-3369 or e-mail church@holyspiritpalmyra.com
