The R.C.I.A., or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is the process of becoming a member of the Catholic Church for unbaptized adults and teenagers. This process also includes baptized adult Christians or Catholics, who are preparing to receive the sacraments of Confirmation, Reconciliation and Eucharist.
As a Journey of Faith, R.C.I.A. begins in the fall and culminates in the celebration of the sacraments of initiation at Easter time.  Participants gather weekly in a comfortable setting to discuss the faith and explore questions about Catholicism, or religion and spiritruality in general. 

If so, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is for you!  Our Parish RCIA Team welcomes anyone who has not been baptized, Catholics who have not received First Eucharist and Confirmation, as well as members of other Christian Churches.  The RCIA is an extended process for adults and teens to pray, study, and discuss matters of faith in a relaxed setting that leads to full membership in the Catholic Church. Weekly sessions to be scheduled for Thursdays from 7:00 to 8:15 p.m.
