Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

(and Teens/Children)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process established by the Church for individuals to become Catholic and receive the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist). This initiation process also involves a parish community that experiences a renewal in faith as it prepares and welcomes new members into the Church. 

 

Who is RCIA for? 

  • Persons in need of Baptism.

  • Persons baptized in another Christian tradition who desire to become Catholic.

  • Persons baptized Catholic in need of First Communion and/or Confirmation (over the age of 14).

How long does RCIA take? 

  • How long does it take for any relationship to develop?

  • We all journey on different paths at different times. The Period of the Catechumenate, or period of instruction, can vary for each person. It all depends on how the catechumen is growing in the faith, and when the catechumen is ready to make a full faith commitment to Jesus and the Catholic Church.

  • On this journey of faith, various Rites are celebrated with the parish and diocesan community. Full initiation into the Church is beautifully celebrated each year at the Easter Vigil, or at another time as deemed appropriate by the bishop or pastor.
