What is RCIA
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) – is intended to instruct in the Catholic Faith those who are seeking to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church through Baptism and/or Confirmation and Holy Communion.
If you are an adult seeking answers to questions about becoming Catholic, or are Catholic and want to receive the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist, we invite you to journey with us in RCIA.
Who should look into RCIA?

- Anyone baptized but not as a Catholic
- Anyone baptized as a Catholic.
- Anyone baptized as a Catholic who did not yet receive first Communion or Confirmation.
- Fully initiated Catholics seeking fuller catechetical knowledge of their Catholic Faith.

- Are you thinking about becoming a Catholic?
- Are you interested in what the Catholic Church teaches?
- Do you want to deepen your undestanding of the person and nature of God and His Son Jesus Christ?

- You may be officially a member of another Christian body who is seriously considering the claims of the Church, or perhaps you were baptized a Catholic but never taught the Faith.
- Maybe you were raised Catholic but later drifted away and are looking to come back to full communion with the Church

Welcome to Journey
You are already on you way toward a deeper faith. Even if you have not started RCIA yet, reading this is at least your first step toward completing the journey. Like most journeys, there will be some steep hills to climb, many obstacles, and even a few traps along the way. But, do not let me scare you! If you invite Jesus into your life, He will be there every step of the way. The steep hills will feel like a casual downhill walk. The obstacles will be a scenery to enjoy along the way. And, you will never ever notice traps. Trust in Him, and He will carry you through.
RCIA the Right Way?
Who is to say what is the right way to go through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. It is a personal journey. It begins with a choice, and it ends with a choice. Plus there are a number of smaller choices in between.
The first choice is whether or not to start the Catholic RCIA process. It is not an easy choice. Anyone you ask about how they felt all will say “I began the RCIA process with some hesitation.”
You have to choose to attend each session, commit to read materials given for the next session, to share what touched you in your life today when you read the materials, to choose to ask difficult questions you might have. You only learn if you let your heart allow you to.
May God bless you and keep you safe on your journey!
