RCIA – Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is a process:
- For persons who have never been baptized
- For persons who have been baptized in other Christian Churches and want to become members of the Catholic Church
- For Catholics who have been baptized but never received the Sacraments of Confirmation or Holy Eucharist.
The goal of the RCIA process is to help people come to a full and conscious decision to participate actively in a life with Jesus Christ within the Catholic Church.
The RCIA helps adults:
- Grow in their relationship with God,
- Become familiar with Catholic teachings and practices,
- Get acquainted with the faith community, and
- Become involved in service within the community as a whole.
