Saint Helena Catholic Church

Hobbs, New Mexico - Diocese of Las Cruces

RCIA

To provide an opportunity for all parishioners to refresh or gain understanding of our Catholic faith. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, or (RCIA) is the Roman Catholic church's worldwide process for the baptism of individuals over the age of 17. 


If already validly baptized in another denomination, adults are brought into full communion with the Roman Catholic Church through this procedure. Also, through this process of instruction and ritual, which involves the entire parish community as well as the bishop of the diocese, those already baptized are instructed and brought through the Sacrament of Reconciliation to the table of the Lord, and the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Ultimately these persons are also confirmed.

 

Classes are offered in English on Wednesday nights.

All information related to this procedure and its particular events is available at the parish office.
