RCIA: Rite of Christian Initiation

RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and is a Christian formation offered to those seeking to become Catholic. Participants in the RCIA program are known as catechumens. They undergo a process of conversion as they study the Gospel, profess faith in Jesus and the Catholic Church, and receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Communion. 

  • If you are baptized Catholic but have been away from the church and are in need of sacraments,
  • If you have never been baptized and would like to become a member of the Catholic Church,
  • If you are Catholic and would like to know more about the Catholic Church,
  • If you are questioning your faith.

We welcome you to join us and learn about the Catholic Church and form a closer relationship with God.
