RCIA logo Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

This Parish has conducted religious education for adults seeking to join the Catholic Church for nearly 30 years. The program is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

Is this you? We especially invite:

  • our non-Catholic Christian brothers and sisters and
  • the non-Catholic spouses who are married to our registered parishioners and
  • those who are baptized in the Catholic Church but have not received all the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist) and
  • those who are interested to know more about the Catholic faith.

Have questions about the Catholic faith? Talk to us! We encourage you to contact us at any time so that we can meet you, answer your questions, and provide you with some resources.

We welcome you into our Parish! If you are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, please consider our RCIA program. In these classes, adults learn about the Catholic tradition and prepare for the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation.

How Does One Become Catholic? The process of welcoming those who wish to enter the Catholic Church is the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) program. Classes meet on Thursdays from 7:00pm-9:00pm.

Although we have September as the starting month of the journey, anyone may come anytime on board and join in the journey. The spiritual journey is continuing and on-going.

If you have any questions about this journey, please contact Sonia 416-293-3011 or John 416-293-7449 or email, st.barts@sympatico.ca so that they can meet you, answer your questions, discuss your spiritual formation, and provide you with resources.

Here is the RCIA registration form.

Also, if you are interested in taking an active part in the RCIA process, as a CATHECHIST or SPONSOR, or just to help out during the sessions, please leave your name and telephone number in the parish office. Information on the requirements for these positions may be obtained from the RCIA director. Training for sponsors will be available.
