RCIA: Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) is an all-encompassing program of intellectual, spiritual, and human formation for adults discerning their calling to join the Catholic Church. This program is for adults who have received some Christian sacraments, are in a different Christian denomination, or are not Christians. During this program, we will walk with each candidate individually to ensure a holistic spiritual and intellectual formation on a case-to-case basis.


Classes begin each fall and will meet every week (with some exceptions) until right before Easter. Candidates are initiated, baptized, or confirmed at the Easter Vigil annually. The life of faith is a journey towards union and intimacy with Christ throughout one’s whole life, and this is only the first step of many! May God bless your discernment; know that we are praying for you!
