The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process by which people become members of the Roman Catholic Church. The process is concerned with the total formation of the person into:

Believing with the Church community (doctrinal formation)

Living with the Church community (practical formation)

Praying with the Church community (liturgical formation)

Serving with the Church community (apostolic formation)

The RCIA is intended to serve:

  • The unbaptized who would like to learn more about the Catholic faith

  • Those baptized in another Christian denomination who would like to become Catholic

  • Those baptized Catholics who have not received both Holy Communion and Confirmation
