RCIA

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults


The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the formation process which guides people inquiring about our faith as well as Catholics seeking full initiation.The formation process includes:

  • doctrinal formation (believing with the Church community),
  • experience of community (sharing faith stories),
  • liturgical formation (praying with the Church community), and
  • apostolic formation (serving with the Church community)
People are helped in the process of discerning where God is calling them. This gradual development aims to help one live a full Christian life. To learn more about RCIA opportunities please contact the parish office.
