What is RCIA?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a restoration of an ancient process for incorporating unbaptized persons into Jesus Christ through the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. In this journey of faith formation, candidates and catechumen (people not yet baptized) are accompanied by members of the community as they learn more about the Catholic faith.

How committed to becoming Catholic do I have to be to begin the RCIA process?

You need only be interested in exploring the possibility of becoming Catholic. There is no minimum degree of commitment required simply to begin the process. We welcome you to come with your questions and to share in conversation about what it means to live the Christian life in the Catholic tradition.

How do I get started?
