What Is RCIA?

RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

The RCIA in its purest form is for those adults who have not yet been baptized - however in reality those that are converting from other Christian religions often go through the RCIA as well.  The RCIA is a process by which adults are introduced to the life of the Catholic Church through Catechesis and liturgy.  When an adult becomes Catholic they receive all 3 sacraments of initiation at the same time - Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation.



Tuesdays: 6:30 – 8:15 PM (ongoing through mid April)

Formation Room in the Parish Center






There is also the RCIC, Rite of Christian Initiation for Children, time to be determined.


If you are interested in joining the Catholic Church, completing the sacraments, or learning more about the Catholic faith, please join us on Tuesday evenings.
