RCIA: Entering the Catholic Church

What is RCIA?
The RCIA, which stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process through which men and women enter the Catholic Church. It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass.


The time has come to reinstitute the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults- R.C.I.A. This process prepares interested persons in becoming Catholics. Any unbaptized person is. welcome as are Christians of other denominations who seek full communion with the Catholic Church. We also accept those who were baptized Catholic but never received any further education in the faith. The process begins in September and continues until May.
If you are aware of any person who might be interested in becoming a Catholic then ASK THEM. When candidates are asked why they did not come into the Church sooner, the response is often, “No one ever asked me.” So do some evangelization and ask a friend, a non-Catholic spouse to “Come and See”. No decision need be made now. Come & learn.
Direct all names and addresses to Deacon Wentzel or call the office and give the information. We will contact the person with an invitation. Thank you.
