Interested in Becoming Catholic?

“Come and see.”

John 1:39

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process for bringing into the Catholic Church both those who have never been baptized and those who were baptized in a non-Catholic church. RCIA is also the best way for adult Catholics who have never been confirmed to prepare for that final Sacrament of Initiation.

St. Mary’s will begin a new RCIA class Tuesday, September 4, 2018 and we invite everyone who would like to join the Catholic Church, be confirmed, or anyone who is simply interested in learning about the teachings and customs of Catholic Christianity to come and join us. RCIA is more than a class; it is a gradual introduction to the customs, beliefs, practices and devotions of Catholicism. There is no obligation – only an opportunity to learn. We hope you will join us!

RCIA meets on most Tuesdays from September through April from 6:15-7:45PM in Saint Mother Teresa Hall located at 125 Union St SE - Next to new church.

For more information or to register for RCIA, please contact Mary Ellen Jackson at mjackson@charlestondiocese.org.
