RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.
There is a Period of Inquiry for those who are thinking about becoming a Catholic and are either unbaptized or have been baptized in another denomination and is seeking full communion with the Catholic Church.
The Catechumenate is the process by which candidates are instructed in the fundamentals of the Catholic faith in preparation to become members of the Catholic faith. The process includes instruction in the basics of the faith and preparation to receive the sacraments.
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults classes are conducted generally on Sundays. The schedule is set to complete the training in time for the students to become members of our Church during an Easter Vigil celebration. It is at this celebration that the candidates are presented to the parish community, receive the sacraments and fully participate in the spiritual life of our parish.
Classes are conducted on an adult level of learning.
