Are you interested in becoming Catholic?
RCIA stands for the “Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.” The RCIA is a journey of faith for those who are searching and inquiring about what the Catholic Church teaches and believes. It is not a class or program, but rather a process of conversion. The usual length of preparation is approximately one year. In most cases, the initiation of new members through the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist is celebrated at the Easter Vigil (evening before Easter Sunday).
Who is RCIA for?
- Those who have never been baptized in a Christian faith.
- Those who were baptized Catholic but did not continue to practice the faith or who have never participated in the Sacraments of Eucharist and/or Confirmation.
- Those who are not currently attending a church or other faith community and who wish to become Catholic.
- Those who would like to convert to Catholicism from another faith.
