Your past, present and future.

Becoming Catholic (RCIA)


It is not ourselves that we are proclaiming, but Christ Jesus as the Lord,and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake."
~2 Cor 4:5

The letters "RCIA" stand for the "Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults". The RCIA describes a process in which men and women are guided and cared for as they awaken in faith and are gradually introduced to Catholicism.

The RCIA process is a series of planned stages, marked by liturgical rites in the presence of the whole community, in which new Catholics embark on and join us in a continuing and deepening conversion into faith and discipleship. The RCIA takes the distinctive history and spiritual needs of each person into account, differentiating between the baptized and the unbaptized, the catechized and the uncatechized.
