R.C.I.A (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

How can I become Catholic? (RCIA)

The process by which people become members of the Roman Catholic Church is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). It is a journey of faith, a process of growth and conversion that takes place through the proclamation of the gospel, teaching of Catholic doctrine and a gradual introduction to the customs and practices of Catholic life.

Invited to participate are those:

  • who have never been baptized.
  • who have been baptized in another Christian denomination who would like to know more about the Roman Catholic faith.
  • who were baptized Catholic and may not have received any other sacraments and would now like to become a practicing Catholic. 

Part of this process includes weekly sessions which are held on Wednesday from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.
We usually meet from September through May. Those who have been fully prepared and discerned their commitment to the Catholic Church will be invited to receive their initiation sacraments at the Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday. Please contact the Faith Formation Office for further information.
