The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, RCIA, is focused on the conversion of Catechumens, the unbaptized, and Candidates, those baptized in other Christian denominations or Catholics seeking to complete their sacramental initiation into the Roman Catholic faith. It is a process focused on conversion during an extended period of formation, typically October through the Easter season.
RCIA participants and their sponsors gather at the 8:30 a.m. Mass each Sunday followed by light refreshments and an adult faith formation session. These sessions are typically led by our priests, deacons, or members of the RCIA team.
