Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
The RCIA is the formal process by which an individual becomes a member of the Roman Catholic Church. Although the RCIA program has a set time frame and is comprised of several distinct periods and steps on the journey towards full initiation, it is recognized that people enter the RCIA process from different starting points. The RCIA is for adults who:
• have never been baptized and desire to learn about the Catholic faith;
• have been baptized in a Christian, but not Catholic, denomination, who are considering becoming Catholic;
• were baptized Catholic but never received Confirmation, or First Communion, and now wish to complete their initiation and become active Catholics; have never been fully initiated but now wish to return to a more active faith life and refresh their knowledge of Catholic belief and practice.
Adult RCIA meetings are held at St. John Paul II Parish on Saturdays from 4:30-5:30pm and then from 6:00-6:30pm, and on Sunday from 9:30-10:30am and again from 11:00-11:30am.
