RCIA: Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults


What does Initiation mean?

  • The goal of initiation is to welcome new members into the Catholic Church by means of the following Sacraments of Initiation: 

    1) Baptism: Doorway to the new life in Christ

    2) Confirmation: Reinforcement/completion of the grace of Baptism

    3) Eucharist: Nourishment with the Body of Christ to develop/renew our spiritual life

    RCIA is designed to serve the following:

    Those who are not baptized, those baptized in the Catholic Church but who have not received Confirmation and the Eucharist, and baptized non-Catholics.

    Are you someone or you know someone who

  • yearns to become Catholic?
  • who may have been baptized Catholic as a child but he or she has never received the first communion or confirmation?
  • a college student living in the area who is at the crossroads of faith and would like to know more about the Catholic Church?

   We encourage you to come and see!
