What began as an on-campus job in Emmanuel's student center transformed into a new career path for Jessie, one that brought her to Harvard University as a master's candidate in higher education administration.
Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is the formation process by which people are prepared and welcomed into the Catholic Church. At Emmanuel, R.C.I.A is open to students, staff and members of the COF community looking to join the Catholic Church, receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, or learn more about their Catholic faith. The group meets weekly throughout the academic year to reflect on their relationship with God and learn about the Catholic faith. Other opportunities include reflection with a peer spiritual companion, a day of service, and a retreat. R.C.I.A. culminates in the celebration of the sacraments during the Easter Season with the Emmanuel College community.
The R.C.I.A. process at Emmanuel meets each individual participant where he or she is spiritually. Whatever your path, we welcome you!
