Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The rite of Christian initiation is designed for adults who, after hearing the mystery of Christ proclaimed, consciously and freely seek the living God, and enter the way of faith and conversion, as the Holy Spirit opens their hearts. By God’s help, they will be strengthened, spiritually, during their preparation, and at the proper time, they will receive the sacraments fruitfully.

This rite includes the celebration of the sacraments of baptism, confirmation, and eucharist. Unbaptized, and baptized, but previously un-catechized adults, celebrate the full communion of the Catholic Church, through inquiry and maturing, purification and enlightenment, and evangelization and celebration of Christian initiation, at the Easter Vigil.   It is a time for deepening the Christian experience, for spiritual growth, and for entering more fully into the life and unity of the Catholic community.
