RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the process by which adults are initiated into the Catholic Church. RCIA provides a series of sessions intended for those who are unbaptized or those who have been baptized in other Christian faiths and need to learn more about the Catholic faith. Children seven (7) years and older are initiated through the RCIA adapted for children.

RCIA classes cover a host of topics about the Catholic faith. The class setting is informal, and questions are encouraged. Class materials are provided, including a syllabus, didactic materials, a Catholic Bible, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

As COVID-19 continues to impact us, RCIA classes will meet via ZOOM. Click here for information on how to use ZOOM.
