RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and it is the process through which people both young and older can learn about the Catholic faith. It is a person’s first step towards joining or completing an initiation into the Catholic Church. RCIA is for people who have not been baptized, those baptized in another Christian religion and desire to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church, or for those who simply wish to learn more about the Catholic faith. RCIA has several stages of formation that are designed to be open and pressure-free. Our classes are relaxed and there is plenty of time for questions and open discussion.
