Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults & Children

The RCIA and RCIC process is the journey by which adults and children, who have reached the age of reason (7), become fully initiated members of the Catholic Church. This involves the gradual formation of individuals through a conversion process as they are introduced to Scripture, church doctrine, liturgy and prayer – all centered on Jesus Christ.

The RCIA and RCIC process begins in late August and includes a team of parishioners who welcome our catechumens/candidates and share their own journey. The adults and children are welcomed into the Church at the Easter Vigil. RCIA is also open to adults who were baptized Catholics but did not receive the Sacraments of Confirmation or Eucharist.
