RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
Would you like to know more about the Catholic Church? The RCIA is a process that welcomes adults who wish to explore the possibility of becoming members of the Catholic Church as well as those who simply desire to know more about the Catholic faith. Catholics who have never received the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation are also invited to participate. Through this journey of faith that varies according to individual needs of each person, the participants seek a closer relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer, Sacred Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church, particularly a deeper understanding of the sacraments.
