RCIA

Faith Formation

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, or RCIA, is a communal process for formal initiation of new members into the Catholic Church. This process is a return to the formation of the earliest members of the Church in the first and second centuries. Each year, tens of thousands of men and women in the United States are received into the Catholic Church through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) on Holy Saturday.

RCIA classes are held on Monday evenings beginning in September. The program culminates with catechumens being received into full communion with the Church as part of the Holy Saturday liturgy.

If you are an adult interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, please contact the parish office.
