The letters R.C.I. A. stand for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. If you were never baptized, RCIA is for you! If you were baptized in one of the Protestant faith traditions and have questions about the Catholic Church and what it teaches, RCIA is for you! If you were baptized into the Catholic Church, but received little or no further formation, RCIA is for you! If you never received any other sacrament, or if you received the Eucharist, but were never confirmed, RCIA is for you! Our adult inquiry classes begin in September and are completed at the conclusion of Lent in March or April (depending upon the date for Easter). If you attend the classes and feel the Lord calling you to become part of the Catholic Church (or become a more complete member of that faith tradition), you will be invited to complete your "initiation" at the Easter Vigil Mass. However, there is never a rush. If you would like to continue your inquiry period for longer than the usual time, we will help you to do that.
