Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA)
For Children, Teenagers and Adults
RCIA is a process for those seeking to receive or complete the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist) in the Catholic Church. The process supports those individuals interested in learning about the Catholic faith through study and discussion of the Bible and Catholic Doctrine. These meetings are part of an ongoing conversion experience that seeks to lead to a deeper understanding and love of the Catholic faith. Feel free to inquire about this process at any time during the year. The unbaptized are encouraged to begin in June and receive their sacraments at the Easter Vigil. Those seeking Confirmation begin in July of each year and are Confirmed by the Bishop.
Have you been Baptized as a Catholic, but have not received First Eucharist or Confirmation? . . . RCIA is the process for you! RCIA is now accepting registrations and making appointments for the interview season.
