And I tell you, you are Peter,
and on this rock I will build my church,
and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven,
and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven,
and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
~ Matthew 16:18-19 (NRSV)

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) will begin at St. Peter the Apostle on Sunday, October 17. The RCIA program welcomes adults into the Catholic faith through study, discussion and prayer. Both baptized and non-baptized individuals interested in becoming Catholic, along with those who wish to receive the sacraments of Holy Eucharist and/or Confirmation, are invited to enroll in the program.
Classroom sessions will meet twice a month, led by Deacons Fred Maier and Bob Ziomek. There will be
at-home studies required along with classroom participation. Those seeking the sacrament of Confirmation will join the program in January, though we request that they register now.
To register for the RCIA program, please the form located on this page.
