Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
Thinking about becoming Catholic?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) may serve your needs if you are:
The RCIA is a process, a faith journey, which prepares interested people to become Catholic. It does this through a series of steps and stages. The process takes place in the Catholic faith community and provides experiences and opportunities to grow in faith, knowledge, understanding, and discipleship in Christ.
The RCIA process forms participants in the Catholic faith and practices through regular worship, ritual celebrations, prayer, scripture, learning sessions on Catholic beliefs and teachings, service opportunities, and retreat times. Those who have already been baptized may celebrate Eucharist and/or Confirmation and come into the Catholic Church whenever they are fully ready. Those not yet baptized come fully into the Catholic Church through the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil (the night before Easter Sunday).
