Christian Initiation (RCIA)
HOW DO ADULTS BECOME CATHOLIC?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process through which unbaptized men and women, as well as unbaptized children who have reached the age of reason (around age 7), enter the Catholic Church.
RCIA includes several stages marked by a deepening relationship with God, study, prayer, community, and celebration of rites at Mass. Participants in this journey are known as seekers, catechumens, and elect, after participation in certain rites of the Church. Come join us!
