Becoming Catholic - RCIA
To become a Catholic,
the Church invites you to participate in the...
RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS (RCIA)
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process that prepares adults to become fully initiated members of the Catholic Church. There is also a process adapted for children, youth, and teens age 7-17 - see below for their process.
Who would take part in RCIA or RCIA-adapted?
Any Non-Baptized person who desires to join the Body of Christ in the Catholic Christian Faith
Baptized Christians from other Christian faiths, validly baptized, who desire full communion with the Catholic Church
Baptized Catholics who did not complete their Initiation Sacraments, most often are uncatechized and desire Confirmation and, if needed, Eucharist
While the RCIA is geared toward baptism & full initiation or reception into full communion with the Catholic Church, any Catholic who would like a refresher course in our Catholic Faith is welcome to participate.
RCIA will focus on conversion to, and growing in, a personal relationship with God the Father, Jesus, His Son, and their Holy Spirit. Our time together will also shed light on living the Catholic faith in our daily lives.
This process begins the lifelong learning and growing that is the life of Faith. You will not come out of this process with a doctorate in the Catholic Faith, but you WILL have what you need to start or continue this journey of faith!
