Catholicism 101

(R.C.I.A. Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)


St. Cecilia Parish would like to cordially invite you to come and learn more about the Catholic Faith. We will be offering instructional classes on the faith, worship, and life of the Catholic Church. Our classes will be held in Centennial Hall and are open to anyone whether Catholics or non-Catholics. We hope you can make it!


For this years RCIA class we will be using a program called Symbolon.


Please feel free to check it out at


If you know someone who is interested in knowing more about the Catholic faith, please invite them to look at the introduction video on the website. Fr. Sughroue will also teach some class, as well as parishioners. This year promises to be a great year!


Please call the parish office (402.463.1336, ext. 101) for more information or to register.



Who is the RCIA Class for?


As Christ taught all who came to him so the Church teaches all who seek Christ. And so, the RCIA class is for anyone-Catholics, Protestants, or from any background whatsoever.


The RCIA class will go through the essential teachings of the Catholic Faith and so it is a great opportunity for a Catholic to learn his or her faith on an adult level, for a Protestant to grow in his or her understanding of the Catholic Church, and especially, for those who have little background in Christianity but want to come to a knowledge of Christ for the first time.
