Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Date: October 10 - 7:30pm


A new series of Inquiry sessions will begin on Wednesday evening,October 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Parish Center of Our Mother of Counsel Parish. This is the beginning phase of the RCIA process for anyone who may be considering becoming a member of the Catholic Church or who may be interested in learning more about the Catholic Church. If you, or someone you know, may be interested in learning more about the RCIA process, please call S. Anne Woodeshick at 610-525-0147 (ext. 234) or email her at awoodeshick@omgcparish.net.

Inquiry sessions, also known as the precatechumenate period, is a series of 6 or 7 Wednesday evenings this Fall, beginning on October 10 from 7:30 ā€“ 9:00pm. This initial phase is a time of discernment, the first stirrings of faith and conversion perhaps, a time to sort out questions and motivations and often the first introduction to the Catholic church. At this point in the process, the individuals are called ā€œinquirers.ā€

We have a young college student who has already expressed her desire to begin the process this October. If you know someone who might need a gentle nudge to begin inquiring about the process, encourage them to email S. Anne atawoodeshick@omgcparish.net or call her at 610-525-0147, ext. 234 who would love to help with their initial questions.

I would also like to meet with any parishioner who would be willing to become a member of the RCIA Team. Team Members share their faith journey with the candidates as time goes on, either during the Inquiry evenings or on Sunday mornings after the 9:30 am Mass as the candidate(s) move along through the process.
