Through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), adults over the age of 18 years become members of the Church over a period of time. This conversion process, through a prayerful discernment of God's will, culminates in the reception of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist), or in the case of Baptized Christians the Profession of Faith, Confirmation, Reconciliation, and Eucharist.
R.C.I.A. is primarily a Journey of Faith ...
Through all those stages of asking and seeking,
Through beginning involvement with Catholic people,
Through hearing the Gospel proclaimed and by faithful reflection and prayer on this Word of God,
Through study and discussion about the Catholic experience,
Through doubts and hesitations,
Through involvement in the works of charity and justice with those already committed to the Catholic way of life,
Through discernment of God's call for them as individuals,
Through the steps of commitment,
Through the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist) to a life of faith, love, and justice in communion with Catholics throughout the world.
Are you baptized Catholic but need to complete your sacraments of Initiation?
Are you baptized in another faith tradition and want to know more about the Catholic faith?
Are you unbaptized and want to explore Catholicism?
RCIA is for YOU! Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
