RCIA – Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (Becoming a Catholic)

RCIA is a spiritual journey into the Catholic faith.

It is an exploration of Catholic teachings, traditions, and practices. Participants attend weekly sessions which begin in the fall each year. It is a process whereby adults become fully participating members of the church through a series of rites, which conclude at the Easter Vigil service in the spring. Each person is supported by sponsors and the prayers of the entire church community.
