Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Who: We welcome all those who are interested in learning about, or joining, our faith community.  Our RCIA Program is intended for four groups of people:


  1. For those who have never been baptized, but who are interested in learning more about the Roman Catholic Church.
  2. For those who have been baptized in a Christian church that is not Catholic. These people would not be re-baptized (or re-confirmed); they would, however, experience the rite of being received into full communion with the Catholic Christian Church.
  3. For those who were baptized as Roman Catholics, but who have not received the Sacraments of Confirmation, the Eucharist or Reconciliation.
  4. Those who wish to update his/her faith.


Attending our RCIA program does not imply that you are committed to joining our faith community.

It is our expectation that, as a result of participation in our RCIA program, you will come to a better understanding of our faith community and what is has to offer you in your spiritual journey.  This may, or may not, lead to your wanting to join our community as a member of the Roman Catholic Church.  For information about joining our RCIA program, please contact your parish office (416-466-8281;, or your Pastor (Father Jinto Puthiyidathuchalil, C.S.C.)
