  •               RCIA / RICA 

    Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

    The RCIA at Ascension is a faith-sharing group accompanying adults in their preparation for the reception of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. This process includes interactive discussions about the different aspects of the Catholic faith. If you are considering becoming a Catholic or are already baptized and would like to receive the sacraments of 1st Communion and/or Confirmation, the RCIA is the right place for you. Sacraments can be received at the Easter Vigil. RCIA meets every Tuesday night at 7:00 PM, in the Church rectory. RCIA also welcomes all Catholics who received the Sacraments, and seek to revive their faith and share their views of the Catholic Church. For more information about RCIA, please e-mail the RCIA team at: rcia@ascensionchurchnyc.org.


    El programa de Iniciacion Cristiana para Adultos (RICA) es un grupo que se reune para compartir la fe entre los adultos que quieren recibir los sacramentos de iniciacion (Bautizo, Primera Comunion y Confirmacion). Si estas considerando ser Catolico o ya estas bautizado pero no has recibido los sacramentos de Pri- mera Comunion o Confirmacion, la RICA es para ti. Este proceso incluye discusiones interactivas acerca de los diferentes aspectos de las enseñanzas de la Iglesia. Nuestro grupo de RICA se reunira los Martes en la noche, empezando el Martes,11 de Septiembre, 2018 a las 7:00 pm en la Rectoria. Para mas informacion, por fa- vor enviar un correo electronico a:
