Rite of Christian Initiation

The Order of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process through which adults become members of the Catholic Church. We start the process with classes that begin in the middle of September each year.

Meetings are held on Monday evenings at 7:00 p.m. Participants choosing to enter into the sacramental life as a Catholic are received into the Church at the Easter Vigil liturgy.

O.C.I.A. is open to anyone who cares to inquire about the Catholic Faith, as well as all adult Catholics who have not received the sacrament of Confirmation/Eucharist in the Catholic Church. Parishioners may accompany our candidates throughout the process as a sponsor.

For more information contact Mary Ann Schirtzinger at (614) 488-6149 during office hours.
