The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
RCIA is a process of faith learning for those that want to know about the Catholic Church. A journey of gradual and continuing conversion. Those who feel drawn to deepen their relationship with God and to learn more about the Catholic faith; engage in periods of prayer, study, discussion and ongoing discernment as to one’s readiness for full initiation into the Church through the Sacraments. If you have never been baptized, were baptized in another Christian Church, or were baptized into the Catholic Church but did not have the opportunity to receive religious instruction and preparation to celebrate the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation, we invite you to consider participating in our Parish RCIA.
What is a rite?
The word rite is interchangeable with the word ritual. The Rite's used throughout the RCIA , contain traditions, prayers and blessings, unique to the conversion journey. They are celebrated and received in the Mass.
We are here to help you learn the beauty of the Catholic faith.
