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.
