Every session,

and after the talk there is time share thoughts and questions in small groups (Discussion).

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults -RCIA

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the normal process to become Catholic. If you know of anyone who might be interested in joining our Church Community, please invite them.

RCIA - Rite for Christian Initiation for Adults - is an open-ended process of formation and education for those interested in the Catholic faith. RCIA is the normal process to become Catholic. If you or anyone you know who are interested in joining our Church Community, please come and see.

RCIA is a deeply spiritual journey that invites people to broaden and deepen their personal prayer life, to know God through Scripture, and to come to realize Jesus’ presence in their lives.

RCIA is designed to bring our faith journey into our hearts, not solely into our heads. The meaning and importance of the core principles and Sacraments of the Catholic Church are woven into the sessions.

We invite anyone interested in becoming Catholic who is:
- Unbaptized or is baptized in some other Christian denomination or
- Baptized as a Catholic, but has not received First Communion (Eucharist)
- Needs Adult Confirmation
Also any person who is already Catholic or who is a “fallen away” Catholic is welcome to attend any session.
