RCIA RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION

Purpose:  To RCIA​, a program of the Catholic Church, is oriented towards those who are searching and inquiring about the Catholic way of life.

THE THREEFOLD PURPOSE OF THE RCIA:  Through the RCIA, the Catholic Church extends an invitation to: (A) Those who are not associated with a community of faith and who wish to become Catholics; (B) Those who want to convert to Catholicism from another faith. (From them, the RCIA is the process through which they will become full fledged Catholics); and (C) Those who want to learn about the Catholic faith. These individuals may be involved in interfaith marriages or simply are actively involved in a Church of a different denomination and they want to learn more about the Catholic faith in the spirit of ecumenism. While this program is oriented for adults, it accepts teenagers who are mature enough to participate in the RCIA.

 

Qualifications:  A Baptized Catholic that ha all their imitation Sacraments and is in good standing with the Catholic Church. This is a real team-building ministry. We are all teamed up with people who have been through the process before. The RCIA process is a journey that will inspire the facilitators, as well as those in the process of becoming Catholic. THe RCIA fills all these needs of those who are searching and inquiring about the Catholic faith.
