Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

RCIAThe faith community of Sts Joachim and Ann Church
invites you to "Come and See"!

  • If you interested in learning more about the Catholic Church.
  • If you are not baptized and recognize a need for spirituality in your life
  • If you are a baptized Catholic or baptized into another religion but never received any formal religious education.
  • If you are yearning for something more in your life.

Every year adults are welcomed into the Catholic Community through RCIA. It is a learning and loving process in which conversion of the heart brings you to Jesus Christ who is our Lord and Savior.

For more information on becoming a Catholic, call the church office at 604 857 1944 and ask to speak with Fr. William Ashley

The doors are open . . . . . We invite you to join us!
