John Carroll offers The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program for students interested in preparing to receive the sacraments of initiation. After a year-long period of preparation, the student receives the sacraments either at the Gesu Church Easter vigil or at the vigil celebration of the student’s home parish.
John Carroll campus ministry staff will prepare students for Confirmation in the Roman Catholic Church. Confirmation is an eight-week program that also includes a service and retreat requirement. Students generally receive the Sacrament of Confirmation at Gesu Church in April. They may also elect to receive Confirmation at the Cathedral of Saint John in Cleveland at the vigil of Pentecost.
