The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process whereby adults are initiated into full communion with the Catholic Church. The R.C.I.A. is for:

  • those who were baptized in other faith traditions but now feel called to become Catholic.
  • those who have never been baptized or do not belong to a faith tradition but now feel called to become Catholic.
  • those who were baptized Catholic but never received Confirmation and First Holy Communion.
  • those who have received both Catholic baptism and First Holy Communion but were never Confirmed.

RCIA is a communal process of spiritual and educational formation for adults who seek to become full members of the Roman Catholic Church through a conversion of mind and heart. The process is open to all persons, regardless of religious background or philosophical persuasion, who genuinely seek, by God’s grace, to live their lives in the distinctive Catholic Christian faith.
