RCIA is a formal process within the Church which allows non-Catholic adults to learn more about the Faith. While it is an educational program, the ultimate goal, if the candidate so chooses, is to be welcomed into the Catholic Faith by reception of the Sacrament of Baptism/Confirmation, which always occurs on Holy Saturday. The RCIA program usually begins in October/November and concludes with the Rite of Acceptance on Holy Saturday. Classes are held weekly and meet at an agreed time convenient for both the instructors and candidates. Assigned readings and class discussion are part of the normal weekly meetings. Any non-Catholic with an interest in learning more about the RCIA process should talk to one of the priests or deacons.

There are many tools that can help people with vision problems. For daily activities, there are magnifying glasses in various strengths in the form of eyeglasses, hand-held devices, full-page magnifiers, or devices for long distance viewing. Search out large print items like books, newspapers, playing cards, telephones, and clocks. Computers can even magnify the text or read the text to the user. For those with some vision, be sure the living space is well-lit to increase visibility and safety. Search the American Foundation for the Blind for other assistive.
