Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.)

The R.C.I.A. is the process by which adults prepare for the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist) through which we welcome them into the Catholic Church. It is a gathering of adults in a supportive, friendly atmosphere to share our personal faith stories, to learn the rich tradition of the Roman Catholic Church, and to engage in prayer and reflection on the Scripture.

  • Meetings: Sunday mornings and a weekday evening, October until Easter
