What is RCIA?

RCIA is a journey and an invitation toward becoming a member of the Catholic faith. It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass.
Participants in the RCIA process are known as catechumens.

Who is it for?

  • Those who have never been baptized in a faith tradition
  • Those baptized in a faith tradition other than Catholic
  • Those baptized Catholic as infants, who have been inactive since that time, and have not received the Sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation
  • Those baptized Catholic as infants, who have received their First Holy Communion but have not received the Sacrament of Confirmation

Schedule

We meet weekly at 6:30PM beginning in September and end at the Easter Vigil where the candidates receive their sacraments.
