Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a faith journey for those desiring to enter the Catholic Church or for those who wish to complete their initiation into the Church.

For anyone wishing to become Catholic, the Church has a process known as RCIA – “Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.” This process takes into consideration whether one is baptized in another faith tradition or unbaptized. It helps us look at each person’s religious experience and spiritual needs.

In the first part of the RCIA process called “Inquiry”, questions are answered and a person is introduced to the Catholic faith tradition. All questions are valued and worthy of a response! If and when a person is comfortable with proceeding to becoming Catholic, then the rites begin. Here the whole community prays with and supports the person as he or she continues and deepens their conversion in faith.
