The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is a process in the life of the Catholic Church for all those who are seeking a deeper knowledge of the Catholic Faith.

R.C.I.A. is for:

  • Those who are not Catholic or Christian and would like to be Baptized
  • Those who are Catholic and have not received all of their sacraments
  • Those who are Christian and would like to become Roman Catholic
  • Any Catholic who would like to learn more about our Catholic Faith and share that faith with others

R.C.I.A. is a process of instruction, prayer, mentoring, Faith development, and Sacramental celebrations.

Classes usually begin in September and are held in both English and Spanish.
