RCIA is the process established by the Universal Church for adults to become Catholic and receive the sacraments of initiation - Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist. The initiation process also involves a parish community experiencing a renewal in faith as it prepares and welcomes new members into the Church. The Rite speaks of conversion as a “spiritual journey”. Centered on fostering a deep relationship with Jesus and the Church he founded, this journey takes place through distinct stages over several months to bring about a thorough catechesis, significant experiences of the parish community, and commitment to the liturgical and moral life of the Catholic faith.

Who is RCIA for?

  1. 1.)  Adults in need of Baptism.

  2. 2.)  Adults baptized in another Christian tradition who desire to

    become Catholic.

  3. 3.)  Adults baptized Catholic in need of First Communion and/or
