Rite of Christian Initiation

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) includes the celebration of the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Eucharist, but also all of the rites of the catechumenate. The initiation of adults is a gradual process that takes place within the community of the faithful.

Together with the catechumens, the faithful reflect upon the value of the paschal mystery, renew their own conversion, and by their example lead the catechumens to obey the Holy Spirit more generously.

If you are thinking about becoming a Catholic, we would love to meet with you and help you learn more about the Catholic faith and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. We begin where you are in your journey – if you have already been baptized or you have never been baptized, if you are at home in church or feel uncomfortable.
