Faith Formation

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a program that is regularly present within our St. Vincent de Paul community. RCIA is a program dedicated to enlightening and educating Christians and non-Christians who are seeking initiation into the Catholic Faith. The outstanding team that leads this program has devoted their time, talent and treasure toward a faith walk of baptism and new life through Jesus Christ and willing followers. If you are interested in the Catholic Faith or would like to help with the RCIA Program, contact Fr. Joseph Wiley at 304-242-0406.
