In an uplifting conclusion to eight months of study and
reflection through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
(RCIA) at St. John's University, 19 students made their commitment
to a life of faith by receiving the Sacraments of Initiation at St.
Thomas More Church on Sunday, April 7.
Participants received the Sacraments of Initiation—Baptism,
