Often times lifelong Catholics say, I wish I could participate in RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults - the journey toward initiation into the Catholic Church). They believe people who become Catholic through RCIA know so much more about the faith. Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained is a series, available on FORMED was created for adults interested in becoming Catholic.

Whether you are already Catholic or you are a non-Catholic interested in learning more about the Catholic Church. This series will lead you through the "big picture" of the Catholic Faith using our Creed as the guide. Symbolon brings together some of the most trusted Catholic teachers in the world to guide you through the breadth and richness of the Catholic faith. Come to one session or join us for all of them.
