Cup of Catholicism   Fall 2017

 The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which the Catholic Church catechizes and informs inquiring candidates who wish to explore the Catholic faith and join the Catholic Church.  We meet on Monday evenings from 7:00pm to 8:30pm at The SIU-C Newman Catholic Student Center, our partnered faith community.  We meet in Spring at Saint Francis.  The Spring schedule will be posted here when it becomes available.  Contact Bill Harper (618) 457-4556  or sfxpa@clearwave.com for more information.
