The RCIA is the process by which adults interested in full initiation into the Catholic Church have the opportunity to inquire into its teachings and to reflect on their readiness for entry into the Catholic faith community. This program is for people who have not been baptized, people who have been baptized in other faith traditions and for baptized Catholics who never completed the other sacraments of initiation- Eucharist and/or Confirmation. Click here for more info.
