Séamus reveals the true facts around historical events such as the Crusades, the Inquisition and many others. Spend the day debunking myths in order to discover the real truth of the church’s history. Holy Mass at St. Augustine’s venerable chapel is included with registration.

St. Basil’s is accepting candidates for the 2019-2020 Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program. RCIA is a very special and intensive program designed for adults exploring the possibility of becoming members of the Catholic Church through the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation). Also welcome to participate are baptized Catholics who desire to receive the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation. RCIA offers adults an opportunity to learn more about Roman Catholic theology and practice. RCIA is also open to fully initiated Catholics who wish to learn more about their faith and hear from experts on topics presented. At St. Basil’s, our RCIA program runs from October until April and explores a variety of topics dealing with the sacramental life and real-world discipleship. Our program draws in an exciting line-up of speakers from the Toronto School of Theology, the University of St. Michael’s College, and Basilian Fathers. If you, or someone you know, is interested in learning more about the RCIA program, please contact email@example.com
