RCIA stands for "Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults". It is a program run by adult members of the parish. RCIA requires a modest commitment in time but we think you will find the process a lot easier than you might expect. In addition, we have found that everyone who becomes involved, young or old, highly religious or moderately so, finds it to be a wonderful experience.
There are many reasons for wanting to learn more about the Catholic Church. The good news is that the Catholic Church of the Assumption of the BVM Parish has an excellent program for you. Classes meet weekly, every Sunday after the 9:00 A.M. Mass September through Pentecost.
How do I join and what does RCIA involve? Signing up is easy. Just contact Deacon Walter Pidgeon, our Director of the RCIA process, by phone (908-850-3320) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
