RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Anyone who is considering joining the Catholic faith or interested in learning more about the faith is welcome to attend the Rite of Christians Initiation of Adults (RCIA). This is the spiritual journey through which adults discern becoming full, participating members of the Catholic Church.  During the RCIA process, interested persons attend weekly meetings where the team helps them to grow in their relationship with God, become familiar with Catholic teachings and practices, get acquainted with people in the parish, and become involved in service within the parish.  The RCIA team assists people in their decision to become Catholic, as well as Catholics who wish to be renewed and updated in their faith.
