Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

It is that time of year when we begin preparing our R.C.I.A. Program. This faith filled program is meant:

  • For those persons who have never been baptized and would like to become members of the Catholic Church;
  • For those persons who were baptized in another faith and who no longer attend that church and are interested in learning more about the Catholic Church;
  • For those persons who were baptized in the Catholic Church, but who have yet to receive the sacraments of Penance, Holy Eucharist or Confirmation.

If interested, please contact Father Lyons at 610-872-6192 or email: olcharity@comcast.net
