RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) provides an opportunity for adults who are seeking full communion with the Church to learn about the Catholic faith.

2023 Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Classes meet Tuesday evenings 7:00-8:30 pm from October through the Easter Vigil Mass in the church basement. Full communion for catechumens (not yet baptized) and candidates (already baptized in the Christian faith) occurs at the Easter Vigil, with them receiving the sacraments of Baptism (for Catechumen), First Communion and Confirmation. Spouses, sponsors, and all parishioners are welcome to attend the classes as well. Those interested in learning more about RCIA can contact Kim VanHuffel, RCIA Director, at kvanhuffel@stbrigidofkildare.org, or fill out the electronic form at the bottom of the page for Kim to contact you.

If you are interested in returning to the Church and would like to speak with someone, please contact Sister Teresa Tuite, Director of Adult Faith Formation (ttuite@stbrigidofkildare.org) or 614-761-3734.
