RCIA1The RCIA is a process of study, exploration, faith sharing, and faith formation for those seeking to become full members of the Catholic Church. If you or someone you know:

  • think you may want to become Catholic 
  • not sure you want to join, but want to know what Catholics believe
  • are baptized Catholic but have not celebrated the sacraments of Confirmation or Eucharist

We extend you the invitation to learn more about the RCIA process. We want becoming Catholic to be an enjoyable experience as well as a spiritual one. Our process utilizes adult education techniques to explain the teaching of the Church, public and private prayer, faith sharing, time for discernment, and the experience of the Catholic community.

RCIA meets on Sunday mornings 9:00am - 10:15am and also involves a Sunday morning Mass commitment.


RCIA2RCIA is a Journey

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process that proceeds over many months.  It has several steps:

Pre-Catechumenate

This is the earliest phase in the process; it is also know as the Period of Inquiry.  Catechumens and Candidates acknowledge that Christ is calling them to the Church through the movement of the Holy Spirit.  This is a time for seeking, questions and reflection.

Rite of Acceptance

The first Rite in the RCIA process, the Rite of Acceptance welcomes new members into the worshipping community.

Catechumenate

The longest part of the process, the Catechumenate is a time of learning and formation in the faith and traditions of the Catholic Church.  This is a time for sharing stories, breaking open scripture, and studying the Church customs, traditions and doctrine.  Participants also participate in liturgy and various Church rituals.

Rite of Election

Catechumens and Candidates are chosen to be received by the bishop and the community, and to receive the Sacraments of Initiation at Easter.

Sacraments of Initiation

At the Easter Vigil (Holy Saturday), all newly elected members of the community who have been journeying through the RCIA process are welcomed formally into the community of believers through receiving the Sacraments of Initiation - Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.

Mystagogy

This is a time of reflection and celebration after the formal reception into the Catholic Church.  Mystagogia means "leading into the mystery" and it is a time to explore the deep mystery of our faith and go forth to help build the reign of God on Earth as new members of the faithful.
