Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is an opportunity for adults interested in learning more about the Catholic Church. It is a process that encourages adults to discern whether the Roman Catholic faith is one to which God is calling them.
The RCIA process is aimed at faith formation for those who wish to prepare for Baptism and is adapted for those already baptized who are now interested in membership with the Catholic Church. For baptized Roman Catholics who have not completed their initiation, these gatherings can prepare them for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist.
