The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) consists of a series of steps by which Adults become full members of the Roman Catholic Church. It is a time of instruction and liturgical Rites leading up to Easter Vigil and full communion with the Church. It is meant for adults and older children. It is for non-baptized individuals or baptized Catholics who have not received Communion and Confirmation. It is also for baptized Christians who wish to join the Roman Catholic Church.

Normally it is a period of instruction that conforms to the school year but can be adjusted to each person’s needs. It is not CCD for adults but a faith journey that incorporates us fully into the Body of Christ forms us as God’s people and brings us closer to our Lord Jesus Christ.
