What is R.C.I.A?:
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a restoration of the ancient practice of initiation into the Church, which is a process of discerning and ritualizing stages of conversion leading us to sacramental initiation. It is our way of responding to people who come to us whith the questions: What is the Catholic Faith? What do you believe? It is the parish community through its witness, worship, service and catechesis that offers the invitation and support necessary for men and women to be initiated into our Catholic faith.
Who is R.C.I.A. for?:
1. Persons in need of Baptism.
2. Persons baptized in another Christian tradition who desire to become Catholic
3. Persons baptized Catholic in need of First Communion and/or Confirmation
When does the process begin?:
Mid August-December is the Inquiry stage. Sessions are held on Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. until the Advent Season. Advent-Easter is the Catachumen/Candidate stage. Sessions are held on Sundays at 9 a.m. For more information, click on "Come and See" in the right column of this page.
