Discover your Faith
The term RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. RCIA consists of a series of stages of preparation, as well as rites (rituals), which take place over a period of anywhere from nine months to a few years. The RCIA orginated in the earliest traditions of the Church for welcoming new members into the Catholic community.
Who is RCIA for?
- Anyone who has never been baptized
- Anyone who has been baptized in another Christian religion and wishes to become Catholic
The RCIA process, a faith journey for those who are interested in joining the Catholic faith and those Catholics who may have been separated for a time and wish to return. It involves a scriptural approach, coupled with Catholic traditions and doctrine to guide those interested in knowledge and love of Jesus Christ and our Church.
