Christian Initiation for Adults

What is RCIA?
RCIA is the gradual process by which interested persons are mentored in a life of discipleship of Jesus and become members  of the Catholic Church.  It is a process addressed to the following groups of adults:
  • Unbaptized 
  • Baptized in another Christian community
  • Baptized Catholics who have had little education in the faith and have not received the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation.
We have also adapted the RCIA process for children who have not been baptized or who were baptized in another Christian community.   Please contact us for details.

How do I begin?
If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about the Catholic way of life or are a Catholic who wishes to complete their initiation, please contact Jennifer at our parish office at 517-627-8493 ext. 14, or by email at jennifernelson@stmichaelgl.org.  Jennifer would love to meet with you to discuss any questions you might have and introduce you further to the process of initiation and our wonderful parish community.
