Considering becoming a Catholic or simply want to know more about the Catholic Faith?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (and adapted for children) is the process in which the Catholic Church welcomes people into the Church. During this process, participants explore the teachings of the Church through learning, discussion, prayer, and community. RCIA is much more than a program; it is a process in which conversion of the heart brings one to Jesus Christ through learning, discussion, prayer and community.
The Rite of Christian Initiation is for
- Unbaptized adults and children over the age of seven who are considering entrance into the Catholic Church through the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation.
- Adults and children over the age of seven who were baptized in another Christian tradition and are considering entering the Roman Catholic Church.
- Adults who are baptized Catholics but now want to complete their initiation through the sacraments of Confirmation and/or Eucharist.
- Those who are seeking more information about the Roman Catholic faith.
Shared Ministers on the Journey - Catholics who would like to learn more about and share their faith and enrich their spiritual lives may serve the participants in the RCIA process as sponsors/godparents, hospitality ministers, prayer companions and catechists.
