Becoming a Catholic
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process designed for adults who:
- Are interested in joining the Catholic Church from another faith tradition
- Have been baptized in the Catholic faith but have not received any other sacraments
- Have been baptized in the Catholic faith but have been inactive and want to renew the practice of their faith
The RCIA process allows you to journey through the full exploration of what it means to be Catholic and the richness of the Church history, teachings, and practices. It normally culminates in reception of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist) at the Easter Vigil.
