Baptism and Sacraments for College Students and Adults

Sacraments are ceremonies or acts that gives us an outward or visible sign of divine grace. Grace, put simply is God's life within us. The grace we receive in the sacraments are what feed a Catholic's life so they can joyfully enter into life's journey and share that joy with others.
 
Sacraments are celebrated in well-known rituals that mark major points in a Catholic's journey from birth to death. The Sacraments of Initiation are Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. We are born anew by Baptism, strengthened by Confirmation, and nourished in the Eucharist. 

Baptism FOR UNBAPTIZED ADULTS

Unbaptized adults or those adults from other faith communities are received into the Roman Catholic church through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCI-A). Our classes for this program begin Sunday, October 1, 2017. If you are seeking baptism in the Catholic faith CLICK HERE to fill out our RCI-A form and we will contact you about making an  appointment with our RCI-A Coordinator (Rob Kubasko at rcia@resurrectionaz.org) for an initial conversation.

SACRAMENTS FOR BAPTIZED ADULTS

Baptized adults in many Christian faiths can become Catholic through a similar process we, for simplicity purposes, still call RCI-A. This process will still require the same classes for this program and they begin Sunday, October 1, 2017. CLICK HERE to fill out our RCI-A form and we will contact you about making an  appointment with our RCI-A Coordinator (Rob Kubasko at rcia@resurrectionaz.org) for an initial conversation.
