The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is a process by which adults who are interested in joining the Roman Catholic Church are gradually introduced to aspects of Catholic beliefs and practices. It is a period of reflection, prayer, instruction, discernment, and formation. All are welcome to attend, even if you are not sure whether you want to become Catholic. These meetings can be a great way to learn more about the Catholic Faith and pray for God’s guidance in your own spiritual pilgrimage.
Interested adults meet on Tuesday evenings in the R.C.I.A. Room (on the 2nd floor) from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Each year on Holy Saturday during the Easter Vigil, adults who have completed the process, are received into the Catholic Church at the liturgy, bringing them into full communion with the Catholic Church.
