Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
Mission: To welcome inquirers who may choose to become Catholic as they continue their faith journey. This process helps individuals seeking entrance into the Catholic Church deepen their relationship with God through prayer, catechesis, community, and service. The process can also be for Catholic adults who have not had the opportunity to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist or Confirmation during the customary time of their lives.
Activities: The length of time for this process depends on the individual’s personal readiness. Beginning in the fall, most individuals are ready to be brought into the Church at the Easter Vigil. RCIA meets on Sundays between the morning Masses to discuss the various teachings and doctrines of the Church, the Sacraments, Mass and other topics of the faith.
