Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is for those who wish to join the Catholic Church. Either previously unaffiliated or baptized into another Christian community, RCIA follows the early Christian communities as a model for how they welcomed new members.
RCIA begins October 22, 2012 with 2 months of question asking and deep prayer, and then moving into greater and greater commitment which culminates in receiving the sacraments of Baptism (if not baptized previously in another community), Confirmation, and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil (Saturday before Easter).
We meet weekly on Monday evenings from October through December, and then bi-weekly from January until Easter. Finally, RCIA ends with several sessions after Easter exploring how you embody Catholicism in your daily life.
