Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

Adults wishing to become members of the Catholic Church as well as those who wish full membership in the Church through completion of the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Holy Communion, Confirmation) must first complete the RCIA program as a catechumen. RCIA includes both catechetical instruction and regular attendance at Sunday Mass. Catechumens are welcomed into the Church as part of the Easter liturgy. The program at St. Patrick and Assumption All Saints is led by Sr. Agatha Mathangani, S.C. Please contact the parish office (201-332-8600) or Anna Maria Padilla, Director of Religious Education, at for more details.
