“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone.” –Ephesians 2:13, 19-20
The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the process by which non-Catholic adults learn about the Catholic Church and prepare to become full members.
Anyone who is considering becoming a member of the Catholic community of faith may enroll in this period of study and discernment. This includes those who are not baptized, those baptized in other Christian denominations seeking to be in full communion with the Catholic Church, and those baptized in infancy as Catholics but who were not raised in the faith.
The RCIA is an eye-opening journey which provides time for learning, prayer, spiritual growth, and quite likely a change of heart. The process can several months or more, as one learns to embrace the call to discipleship and holiness by responding to the Word of God, Jesus Christ.
The Church welcomes new members of all ages into Christ’s family. Please contact the parish for more information.
