Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is a process of initiation into the Catholic Church for person who are experiencing a conversion in their lives and seeking either Baptism in the Catholic Church or full Communion with the Catholic tradition of Eucharist and/or Confirmation. It is the study of Catholic Christian teachings, Scripture, the development and deepening of a life of prayer and action with the support and involvement of the local Catholic community. RCIA is more than a course of instruction. It is a process of formation, designed to meet the unique and individual needs of the participants.
Who is RCIA for? - Non-Baptized individuals who wish to find out about the Catholic Faith and be baptized. - Those baptized in another faith who want to find out more about the Catholic Faith and make a Profession of Faith. - Those baptized Catholic but who never received Confirmation or First Eucharist.
