RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. The RCIA process prepares individuals who desire to become Catholic.

Adults from any faith, tradition, or no religions background at all are welcome to participate in the RCIA. The participants will meet weekly to learn about what the church teaches, how the church teaches, the Bible, and spirituality. The process may take a year or longer depending on each individual.
