Adult Initiation

RCIA

Classes

RCIA classes are held on the first Saturday of the month by Nikki Walker, our baptism training coordinator.

Come Explore the Catholic Church!

If you are eighteen years of age or older and unbaptized or baptized in another faith expression, or a baptized Catholic who has never received your First Holy Communion, then the RCIA is for you!

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
RICA is the Church’s ritual process for calling adults to a conversion of mind and heart, and preparing them for a full, active life in the Church as disciples of Jesus.

During the process, adults participate in liturgical rites that mark the progress fo their journey and form them more deeply by God’s grace. The culmination of the process is the celebration of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.

Who is RCIA for?
People interested in learning about Catholicism.
People who have never been baptized.
People who have been baptized in another Christian faith tradition and are now interested in the Catholic tradition.
People who were baptized in the Catholic tradition, but were not raised Catholic, and are seeking the sacrament of Confirmation.

If I begin, do I have to become a Catholic?
No. We hope that you gain a deeper appreciation for and understanding of Catholic beliefs and practices. Beyond that, we respect the conscience and decision of every inquirer.
