Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process for anyone who wishes to inquire about or to join the Catholic faith. Preparation for adult Baptism (includes anyone over the age of seven who has not been baptized) and adult Initiation (celebrating the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist) are part of the RCIA process.
The primary goal of this journey is conversion, conversion to Christ. Ideally, it is a one year process providing catechumens (those who are unbaptized) and candidates (those who have been baptized in another faith tradition) a full liturgical year of faith filled experiences.
“Inquiry” sessions are held starting in the fall at a time determined by the team and participants. Newcomers are welcome to join us at any time. The RCIA Team and sponsors from the community experience a faith renewal and transformation as well.
