If you are interested in receiving the Sacrament of Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, or all of the above, we offer classes for adults to further their understanding of the faith before receiving these sacraments.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

The RCIA program is the study of the Catholic Faith for adults, who desire to enter and learn more about the Catholic faith.

This class is offered for adults in one of the three following situations:

  1. Un-baptized adults who desire to be baptized in the Catholic Church;

  2. Baptized non-Catholic Christians who desire to be formally admitted into communion with the Catholic Church;

  3. Baptized Catholics who have not yet been confirmed and desire to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.


Adult baptism takes place at St. Jude during the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday.

To register, contact Miss Chiara Sullivan
