The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process by which adult 18 years or older become members of the Roman Catholic Church. It is a process that provides a special time either to begin your faith journey or to look back over your continuing faith life. During R.C.I.A. you will develop a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through His Body, the Church.

The process is concerned with the total formation of the person into:

  • Believing with the Church community (doctrinal formation).
  • Living with the Church community (practical formation).
  • Praying with the Church community (liturgical formation).
  • Serving with the Church community (apostolic formation).

The RCIA is intended to serve:

  • The unbaptized who would like to learn more about the Catholic religion.
  • Those baptized in another religion who think they might like to become Catholic.
  • Those baptized Catholic who have not completed the Initiation Sacraments or who have not been raised in the Faith.
