RCIA

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Our RCIA Program is held on Monday nights in the lobby of the Parish Center from 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Have you thought about becoming Catholic?
Do you often wonder why Catholics do things the way they do?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then maybe you are being led to RCIA!
RCIA is a process where adults are introduced to the Catholic faith and way of life.
Were you baptized Catholic? If so, do you need the Sacraments of the Holy Eucharist or Confirmation?

RCIA normally takes 9 months, although it can vary according to personal situations. It includes:

  • The Inquiry Period introduces the interested person to basic information about the Catholic faith and fundamentally communicates the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Inquirers are invited to initial conversion and, although there is no obligation at this time, classes are intended to help them decide whether they would like to continue to learn more about the faith.
  • The Period of the Catechumenate is an extended time in which Catechumens (those not baptized) and Candidates (those validly baptized) are given pastoral formation and guidance aimed at training them in the Christian life.
  • The Period of Purification and Enlightenment, which corresponds with Lent, is intended to increase introspection and coming closer to God. The aim of this period is to eliminate what is weak and sinful and affirm what is holy.
  • The Period of Mystagogy is a special time during Easter in which the neophyte (newly initiated person) deepens their understanding of the mysteries of faith and is more fully immersed in the life of the Church.
