THE rcia process

Persons who are seekers of faith are invited to enter a wonderful process with a big name: The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or RCIA. Through this process people gather with others to explore, learn, discuss, question, experience and celebrate the Catholic Faith. People are invited to begin this journey of faith at any time. They enter the church when they are ready, usually during the Easter Vigil. The process can take anywhere from 8 months to a year or more. Each individual’s own journey is respected and no one is ever pressured to enter the Catholic Church.

adult confirmation

The Adult Confirmation process is an interactive opportunity for Catholics who have not had the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation to complete their full initiation into the Catholic Church.
