RCIA - RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS
Each year, as the sun sets on Holy Saturday evening, tens of thousands of people around the world receive their Sacraments of Initiation – Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation – and join the Catholic church. The process is called RCIA – the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults – and it mimics the process in the early church where people who witnessed the difference in the way the early Christians lived their lives would enter into a lengthy process of discernment, learn about the faith and decide if they wanted to join the Christ-followers. Perhaps you, or someone you know, is non-Catholic but married to a Catholic, and would like to worship and serve with your spouse. Perhaps you were baptized as a child, but were never confirmed. Perhaps your formal study of your faith ended when you left Catholic grade school, and you would now like to delve into it in an adult way. If so, then you may want to join the RCIA as a catechumen, someone who needs to be baptized; a candidate, someone who needs to complete their sacraments of initiation; or a sponsor, a confirmed Catholic who wants to grow in faith by accompanying a catechumen or candidate on their faith journey.
