RCIA is not only for Inquirers into the Catholic Faith.  It can be for those already members of the faith but want a deeper understanding about the faith.  Learn more about the tradition, history, bible, teachings, beliefs, sacraments, richness and much, much more.

Meaning of the Eucharist in the Life of the Church

During the Annual United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Spring General Assembly, held the third week of June, Bishop Daniel E. Thomas joined his brother Bishops to discuss many important topics. One of the decisions following this conversations was to draft a document on the meaning of the Eucharist in the life of the Church, about which there have been many questions and media misinformation. You are invited to read the statement from the President of the USCCB, Archbishop José H. Gomez of Archdiocese of Los Angeles, which can be found here. In addition, you are invited to read the Q&A document intended to provide further clarity on the subject here.
