RCIA-Rite of Christian Initiation

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION 

RCIA is a process of prayer, reflection, and learning that allows for the continual discernment of God's will in our lives. No matter where you are on your faith journey, there is a place for you at St. John's! The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process for adults. 
 
Many people inquire about becoming Catholic for many different reasons. Phase one of the journey starts in the heart of the seeker and continues in a small inquiry group where questions are raised and discussed freely. We call it a process because, like any faith journey, each one’s pace is unique. The general process that the Catholic Church uses to initiate adults is based on the same process that the early Christians used during early centuries of Christianity. Full initiation takes place with the reception of Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Communion. 
 
God has called people by name to come together on a journey of faith.
