Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and Children (RCIA)

Searching for something?

At different times we ask questions about what life is all about.  Where is God in my life?  Sometimes they feel a nudge or a push or that something is missing and want to find out more.  If you know anyone who is not a Catholic, but who would like to ask more questions about our faith, they can meet with someone from our parish R.C.I.A. Team.

Please call Fr. Bob at 676-0676 , or send email to

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and Children (commonly known as the R.C.I.A.) is the normal way in which adults and children become full, active, participating members of the Catholic Church.  Special rites are celebrated during the Sunday liturgies at various times throughout the year.  The R.C.I.A. involves the whole parish-in prayer as the rites are celebrated, in hospitality, as new members are welcomed, and in specific ministries such as sponsor and team member.

The R.C.I.A. is not merely a new way to prepare adults and children for baptism; baptism is only one step.  The goal of the process is full communion which means “full, conscious, and active participation”* in the Eucharist and in the whole life of the Catholic faith community.

The R.C.I.A. helps adults and children to grow in their relationship with God become familiar with Catholic teachings and practices, get acquainted with people in the parish, and get involved in service within the parish or the wider community.

Many persons who want to join the Catholic Church have already been baptized in another Christian Church.  They will not be rebaptized.  They will follow steps adapted to the particular needs and concerns of Christians from another faith tradition.  Explore those steps on the next page.
