“When we receive him in our hearts, Christ makes himself present and takes shape in our lives. It is He who prays, forgives, infuses hope, serves the brothers most in need, creates communion and seeds peace in our lives. It is He who does that!”
Pope Francis

EDUCATION: Formed in His Communion

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Are you interested in learning more about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ amidst His church?

The St. Ambrose RCIA program strives to educate the mind and heart through authentic instruction and lived experience. It is the way that the Catholic Church helps people prepare for life as an adult Catholic-Christian.

If you answer yes to any of these questions...

Do you have questions about the Catholic Faith and are not Catholic?
Are you a Christian who wants to learn more about Catholicism?
Has God been calling you to consider Catholic Christian faith?
Are you an adult Catholic who has never received First Holy Communion or Confirmation?


The classes meet on Monday nights from 7-8pm in the St. Ambrose Parish Hall and runs from September through April or May (depending on the date of Easter). Please click here to download the RCIA Calendar & Syllabus for 2014-2015.

If you have any questions about becoming a Catholic-Christian or the RCIA program, please contact the Director of Religious Education, at 703-280-1122 or Lmead@stambroseva.org

Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,
And in our hearts take up thy rest;
Come with thy grace
and heavenly aid
To fill the hearts which thou has made.

-St. Hrabanus Maurus (9th century)
