What is RCIA? The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the process, established for the universal Church, for individuals to become Catholic and receive the sacraments of initiation—Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist. This initiation process also involves the parish community experiencing a renewal of faith as it prepares and welcomes new members into the Church. The Rite speaks of conversion as a “spiritual journey,” centered on fostering a deep relationship with Jesus and the Church he founded. RCIA starts in September. We focus on catechesis: learning about the Catholic faith, learning about the parish community, and the liturgical life of the Church.

If you are interested in knowing about our program or know someone who would like to know more about the Catholic faith, contact Elena Platas in the Parish Office at 619-284-3472.
