Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
If you or someone you know is interested in knowing more about the Catholic faith or becoming a member of the Catholic faith, we invite you to RCIA (the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). RCIA is a 7 month process of getting to know about/becoming a member of the Catholic faith. We meet most Monday evenings 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. from September until the Easter Vigil. Older children, ages 6-13, who wish to be baptized into the Catholic faith have their own sessions on Monday evenings at the same time as RCIA. This program for the children is called RCIC (the Rite of Christian Initiation for Children).
