Becoming Catholic: RCIA

What is RCIA?


RCIA is a journey anyone can embark on if you: 

  • Want to become Catholic
  • Want to be Baptized
  • Have never been Confirmed
  • Have never received your First Communion
  • Want to learn more about the Catholic faith, no strings attached

In more detail, The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process for unbaptized persons and those who have been baptized in another Christian tradition to become Catholic. This includes children who are 7 years old or older who are unbaptized. They participate in the RCIA process known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC). 

It is also for Baptized Catholics who have received no other faith formation and have not received the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.

The process begins in the Fall and culminates with the reception of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist) at the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday.
