Our Lady of Soledad


Perhaps one of the “best-kept secrets” of the Church is the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.  It is “kept secret” because too often it is misunderstood and regarded as “a new name for catechetical instruction”.  The RCIA is based on the Gospel and early Church experience.  The Gospel point to the witness of the early disciples, they lived in such a distinct way that many were drawn to become like them, followers of Christ.  This involved then as it does now, the entire Church and ordinarily reaches its climax at the celebration of the Easter Vigil.  This is indeed a spiritual journey that invites the person to enter fully into the life of the Church as full and active members.  More so, as witnesses to a future generation of what it means to come to know and follow the Lord.

It is important to note that the Sacraments are not purchased, any fees associated with the celebration or sacraments are administrative in nature and related to good stewardship.  Please see below for registration information.
