The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which people become members of the Roman Catholic Church. It’s a time of learning, faith formation, and participation with the church community. This gradual development culminates with the celebration of the initiation sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil Mass. RCIA is also the process by which adults who were baptized into the Catholic Church as infants, but who never received further sacramental preparation, become full members within the Church through reception of Confirmation and Eucharist.

If you or someone you know has expressed an interest in the Catholic Church, RCIA may be the way of finding out more about it.
