RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The RCIA is a series of rites through which a person becomes a member of the Catholic Church.   The RCIA takes place within the parish community and culminates in the reception of the Sacraments of Initiation.

The RCIA provides a forum for shared spiritual growth, and a means to explore the Rite of Christian tradition through the scriptures, sacraments, church teaching and the faith community.

The process is for anyone who is:

  • Unbaptized,
  • Baptized in another faith tradition, or
  • Baptized in the Catholic Faith and who seeks to complete their initiation through the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.
