Adult Baptism

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (R.C.I.A.)

Are you exploring the possibility of becoming a Catholic? The process for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) begins in the Fall. The process culminates with Baptism or Profession of Faith at the Easter Vigil. The RCIA is a year-long process of exploration, prayer, reflection and study that leads to full Christian initiation at the Easter Vigil in the Roman Catholic community.
