Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

Interested in becoming Catholic?

Learn about the Catholic Church in RCIA

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a process designed for those who want to learn more about the Catholic faith and traditions. The RCIA process includes a series of weekly sessions that start in September.

Those who desire to come into the Church spend time together in prayer, discernment and discussion with their sponsors, the RCIA team and the parish.  They learn the history, prayers, postures and practices of the Church that many cradle Catholics take for granted. But more importantly, they learn about the great love of God expressed through the sacrifice of Jesus in the Eucharist and the boundless grace given in the sacraments.

If you have questions about RCIA or are interested in participating (as an inquirer, sponsor or team member), please contact us.
