Are You Interested in Joining RCIA


The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process established for the universal Church for individuals to become Catholic and receive the sacraments of initiation:  Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist.  The Rite speaks of conversion as a “spiritual journey.”  Centered on fostering a deep relationship with Jesus and the Church He founded, this journey takes place through distinct stages over a period of time suitable to bring about a significant experience of the parish community, and commitment to the liturgical and moral life of being a Catholic.  There is no obligation involved for those who attend our casual and informal sessions.   Our Inquiry Sessions begin Tuesday, Sept. 13, in St. Theresa’s Room.


Who is RCIA for?


  1. Adults in need of Baptism.

  2. Those baptized in another Christian tradition who desire to become Catholic.

  3. Those baptized Catholics in need of First Communion and/or Confirmation.

  4.  Practicing Catholics who wish to learn more about their faith.

  5. Catholics who have lapsed in their faith and want to return to good standing.

    For more information call Diana Wolfe, 838-1113.


Totus Tutus 2016

Totus Tuus was held at St Jude this year, Sunday July 17th—Friday July 22nd.  They spent the week learning and sharing with each other and on Friday they had a celebration of dessert, water balloon fights & popsicles on the playground.  Since they were all smiling, we knew they had a good time.

What is SCRIP?

SCRIP is a fundraising method popular with non-profit organizations. With SCRIP, retailers offer gift certificates/cards to non-profits at a discount. The non-profits sell the gift cards to families at full face value. The families redeem them at full face value, and the discount or rebate is retained by the non-profit organization as revenue. The parish/school office has SCRIP available to local grocery stores, restaurants and department/retail stores.  Purchasing SCRIP is easy.  You choose the gift cards you want to purchase and pay either by check or cash.  As each gift card is sold the school receives a percentage of the sales.  The percentage may be as small as 1% or as large as 16% depending on the retailer.  Every little bit adds up.  The profits from the sale of SCRIP go to the PTO account to be used for funding of events, repairs and purchases for the school.  So next time you read the Bulletin and see, “We sold $5,175.00 last week for a profit of $204.77; with 20 families participating”, you may understand a little more what it means.





I asked this question of RCIA members, and here are some of their responses: 

“Spiritually I am now a soldier of Christ whereas before I was not.”  R.R. 2015


“The RCIA class was a wonderful thing the church provides.  It teaches you the truth about the faith, and explains why we believe what we do, and clears up any misconceptions.  My experience with Protestant churches had been just say you wanted to join and you were in.  No training on what that denomination believed and why.  I love the Catholic Church.  When we are out of town and cannot attend mass at St. Jude, we always attend where we are, and feel like a part of that church while attending mass, not a visitor.  It is truly heartwarming.”  J.W. 2015


“My deepening dating relationship with my fiancé, the pull of Reconciliation, the beauty of the Mass itself and the fact that I was actually feeling spiritually FED…all these things pulled me in to RCIA.  RCIA isn’t a one-lane, no-stops trip to becoming a Catholic.  It’s part of an inquiry process, and there’s no “obligation” to join at the end if you’re still of inquiring mind.  But I knew—at least for me—that once I was in, I was a goner for the Church.”  A.R. 1998 


“The RCIA program has been what I hoped it would be.  The entire team has been great and full of knowledge.  They are all able to clarify questions or confusion.  We have a lot of great resources available to us.  Thanks to everyone on the RCIA team who has been committed to make this a positive and wonderful experience.”  C.T. 2013


“RCIA has been helpful to me for many different reasons.  The different parts of the Mass have been broken down for us.  We learned how the Catholic Church is organized.  Knowing that so many volunteers are prepared and waiting for us every class night helps keep me motivated to learn.  My daughter and I both make sacrifices every week so that I can attend RCIA, but I walk out of class feeling that those sacrifices are worth it.”  J.M. 2013


“RCIA ushered me into falling in love with the Church.  Some of the relationships that began in those weekly classes are still very precious to me and have helped me realize how lucky I am to be a Catholic woman.  I have made lifelong connections, and they are not of the shallow variety that life so often presents us with.  The dedication of the volunteers and teachers is a powerful testimony to how beloved our faith is, and also illustrates what a gift it is to be the recipient of the knowledge, humor, support, love and guidance of all the wonderful people who serve with RCIA.  I LOVE my Church.  I would not be making it through these hard, long days caring for my very seriously ill Mom without the faith cradling me and helping me pray when I don’t have words.”  B.L. 2015 


I love these stories.  They are so beautiful and sincere and each one is now a member of St. Jude Parish.  Each one left the comfort of their living room couch and walked into the RCIA classroom—not knowing exactly what to expect.  Each one traveled their own faith journey that culminated at the Easter Vigil Mass when they joined the church.   If you know anyone who would like to check out the Catholic Church, please tell them to call me - Diana Wolfe – 838-1113; or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.   Please remember the RCIA team members and the future RCIA’ers in your daily prayers!   Thank you,
