RCIA Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults
RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initation of Adults. It is a process that an adult man or woman goes through to become Roman Catholic. It is a program that enables adult Catholics who have not received their First Eucharist (Communion) or who were not confirmed to receive those sacraments.
This program provides answers to questions and education about the doctrine of our religion.
Do you go to Mass on Sunday, but never been baptized?
Are you someone who had been baptized, but never received First Eucharist?
Perhaps you have been baptized and received the Eucharist but not confirmation?
Maybe you were baptized in another faith, but now hear God calling you to follow Him as a Catholic?
Perhaps you have children in the Religious Education Program but you have not been able to complete your sacraments?
Were you raised Catholic but do not come or seldom come to church anymore?
Are you a Catholic who feels separated from your church?
Would you like to know more about the Catholic Church again?
No matter how long you have been away and no matter the reason, we invite you to consider renewing your relationship with the Catholic Church.
