St. Jude Parish will host the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), open to those contemplating entering the Roman Catholic faith or who currently are Catholic but have not yet completed their sacramental preparation for Eucharist or confirmation. RCIA enables individuals to learn more about the Catholic faith while attempting to discern if they are being called to become Catholic. The program is also ideal for those who were baptized into the Catholic faith and now wish to complete their sacraments of initiation. Sessions are informal and informative. For more information, call Ann Marie Hilchey at 548-0531 or the parish office at 432-3333.
