About this event

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the “spiritual journey” through which individuals become Catholic and receive the sacraments of initiation – Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist. This initiation also involves the parish in experiencing a renewal in faith as it prepares and welcomes new members into the Catholic Church. Centered on fostering a deep relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church he founded, this journey takes place through distinct stages over a period of time suitable to bring about a thorough catechesis, significant experience of parish life, and commitment to the liturgical and moral life of the Catholic faithful. The RCIA process is a restoration of the ancient catechumenate, called for by the Second Vatican Council for the use of the worldwide Church (Sacrosanctum Concilium, no. 64). Those entering the Catholic Church through RCIA baptized as members of the Church at the Easter Vigil. The Rite of Christian Initiation often is used to catechize baptized Catholics who have not received religious instruction nor the First Holy Communion. Non-Catholics, baptized or unbaptized, join the Catholic Church through RCIA and the sacraments of initiation. RCIA gives them an opportunity to learn about the Catholic faith and customs, study scripture and the catechism, develop fellowship with other Christians, and deepen their prayer life and relationship with Jesus Christ.
