RCIA Program

  • WELCOME

Announcements will be made in the Cathedral bulletin, website, and other media channels for people to sign up for RCIA and to meet the team facilitating it.

  • PERIOD OF INQUIRY

This beginning period lasts about 3 months. It will conclude with the celebration of the Rite of Acceptance, to initiate those who want to continue the journey into the order of catechumens.

  • PERIOD OF CATECHUMENATE

This period allows for catechumens to deepen their knowledge of God, and grow in fellowship with other participants. They will also attend part of the Sunday evening Mass and gather for Gospel sharing after the Liturgy of the Word.

There is typically a weekend retreat and Day of Recollection for reflection and prayers. This period concludes with the celebration of the Rite of Election, which happens on the first Sunday of Lent, sometime before Easter.

  • PERIOD OF PURIFICATION & ENLIGHTENMENT

Participants go through a period of discernment, spiritual direction, praying and preparation for Easter. They will then receive Christ through Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Communion during the Easter vigil.

  • PERIOD OF MYSTAGOGY 

After Easter, as “new” Catholics, they will attend additional sessions to deepen their faith, and build Small Christian Communities (SCC). These sessions help to also deepen their bonding with one another as brothers and sisters in Christ, and to understand what it means to be a disciple of Christ and of the mission to serve God and the Church. Soon after Easter, there would be a pilgrimage to Malacca in Malaysia for spiritual enrichment and fellowship to build the community.

The RCIA journey wraps up on Pentecost Sunday. To live a life of faith is a lifelong mission, so after this, the “new” Catholics are encouraged to grow in faith by continually receiving Holy Communion and living out the teaching of Jesus.
