Want to Become Catholic?

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.

Congrats to the 2017 RCIA class

Classes meet Thursday evenings 7:30-9:00 pm from October through the Easter Vigil Mass, with one additional meeting in the month of May and an optional Mass at the Cathedral on Pentecost Sunday. Full communion for catechumens (not yet baptized) and candidates (already baptized in the Christian faith) occurs at the Easter Vigil. Catholic spouses and all parishioners are welcome to attend the classes. Those interested in learning more about RCIA can contact Kim VanHuffel, RCIA Director, at kvanhuffel@stbrigidofkildare.org or 593-5173, 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.
