Rites of Christian Initiation

What is the RCIA?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which people can question, search, and inquire into the Catholic faith. It is a journey which leads many to seek full membership in our Church. For others this journey may not lead to full membership. Either way, all are welcome to come and see, to ask questions, and to look more deeply.

Who is the RCIA for?

*The RCIA is for any unbaptized adult who is new to the Catholic faith or any unbaptized child usually over the age of 7.

*The RCIA is also for any adult or child over the age of 7 who was baptized in another Christian tradition.

*The Catechumenate also welcomes baptized Catholic adults seeking to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
