Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults ~ RCIA

Are you thinking about becoming Catholic?

The Catholic Church warmly welcomes new members and tries to provide an appropriate spiritual formation according to each person's needs.

Most Catholics are baptized as infants. Others, who were previously baptized in other Christian traditions, become Catholics after making a solemn Profession of Faith, receiving Confirmation and sharing Eucharist with the Catholic Community.

Still others, who were not previously baptized become Catholic through a process called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, which includes the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist, and usually takes place at Easter.

The Church wants to share its' life with new members and offer them support and encouragement through the R.C.I.A process.
