Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A)


Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults Adapted of Children (R.C.I.A-AC)

“Preparing hearts to receive Jesus”


Welcome! We are very excited that you are considering joining the Catholic Church as a full member.

“In the sacrament of Christian initiation we are freed from the power of darkness and joined to Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. We receive the Spirit of filial adoption and are part of the entire people of God in the celebration of the memorial of the Lord’s death and resurrection.”….RCIA Book, Introduction pg xvi

What is the RCIA/ RCIA-AC journey?

It IS:

  • A faith journey where you build a personal relationship with Jesus.
  • You are guided and supported during your journey by the RCIA/RCIA-AC Team, your Sponsor and the faith community.
  • You will become familiar with the beliefs of the Catholic Church.

RCIA/RCIA-AC is only the beginning of your faith journey, not the end.


  • A series of classes
  • A program
  • Something you will ever graduate from or complete.

RCIA and RCIA-AC is for those who have NOT been baptized and/or those baptized under a different faith.
