Welcome to the St. Leo the Great Catholic Church (Hilton, NY) RCIA website.

Why become Catholic?  If this question crossed your mind during the Easter Season, perhaps you should consider joining our St. Leo’s RCIA classes!

RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. St. Leo’s invites you to prayerfully consider becoming Catholic or joining in full communion with the Catholic Church!

If you were Baptized Catholic and received First Communion, but were never confirmed, please sign up for our summer Adult Confirmation classes! Classes are usually held on Monday evenings, following the 5:30 pm Mass from 6-8pm. We begin classes at the end of June and end late August. Confirmation will take place at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in the fall.

RCIA Classes are for unbaptized adults or those baptized into a different Christian Faith who desire initiation into the Catholic Church. Classes are free, begin in the fall and the candidates/catechumens are brought into full communion with the Catholic Church at Easter. The classes are held at 5pm, Sunday Evenings before the Life Teen Mass at 6pm.  You will increase your understanding of Catholic Church teachings by attending.

You may ask: What’s so special about the Catholic Church?

The Eucharist!!

Think of it this way: The Word was made Flesh, then the Flesh was made food.

“The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” John 1:14

“This is My body…” Luke 22:19

“My flesh is true food.” John 6:55


The Catholic Church can trace its roots back all the way to Jesus, Himself! Two thousand years of history, starting when Jesus instituted the Church:

“Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.” Matthew 16:18
