RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
Interested In Becoming Catholic?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the conversion process by which people become members of the Roman Catholic Church. It is concerned with the total formation of the person into:
- Believing with the Church community (doctrinal formation)
- Living with the Church community (practical formation)
- Praying with the Church community (liturgical formation)
- Serving with the Church community (apostolic formation)
RCIA is a gradual process consisting of 4 phases, each of which corresponds to a person’s growth in faith and entry into the life of the Christian community. Each phase is marked by a liturgical celebration as the person moves from one period to the next. These rites prepare the catechumen (unbaptized) and the candidate (baptized) for the reception of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.
