Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Precautionary measures regarding halting the spread of COVID-19

From the Diocese of Calgary: “Formation of catechumens and candidates are [sic] suspended. It will be left to the Pastor to determine their readiness. The celebration of full initiation will be postponed to later in the year. The celebration of the sacraments of full initiation will be postponed to later in the year as determined by the Bishop in consultation with the parish priest.”
