OCIA (Order of Christian Initiation of Adults) begins in September.  Please join us Monday evenings at 7:00 pm.  For more information, please contact the Parish Office at 315-637-9846 or email the RCIA Coordinator Craig Rheaume at crheaume@syrdio.org.

Jesus promised, “Whoever believes in Me…rivers of living water will flow from within him,” (John 7:37-38); and “I came that they may have life, and have it more abundantly,” (John 10:10)

The OCIA process begins the journey of faith that leads to the fulfillment of our Lord’s promises and is for all adults who:

  1.  Have never received the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, or Jesus in the Eucharist and desire to, or;
  2. Have been baptized in a non-Catholic faith tradition but desire full communion in the Roman Catholic Church upon receiving Confirmation and Jesus in the Eucharist, or;
  3. Are already baptized Catholic and still need to receive the sacraments of Confirmation and/or Eucharist, or;
  4. Are already Catholic or non-Catholic Christians and simply desire to learn more about the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ.
