RCIA

RITE of CHRISTIAN INITIATION of ADULTS

The acronym RCIA means the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. The RCIA provides a guide for the process of learning what the Christian/Catholic Faith is all about. Acceptance into this process depends on the level of the individual. For instance, one is first accepted as an inquirer will progress to the next stage in their faith. The next stage is to be a catechumenate, which is one who has the ability to accept God’s calling to be fully initiated in the Catholic Faith. Once an individual has completed the catechumenate stage, s/he will be fully initiated in the Catholic Church receiving the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation at the Easter Vigil or at some other appropriate time. If you or someone you know is interested in growing in the faith and starting their individual journey of faith, kindly contact Parish Office @ 432-570-0952.
