Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults








Interested in Becoming Catholic?
Men and women who have not been baptized are referred to as “catechumens” and enter the Catholic Church through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). This process has several stages of prayer and formation that culminate in the Holy Saturday Easter Vigil Liturgy as the catechumen receives the three sacraments of initiation: baptism, confirmation, and Eucharist.
