Thinking about becoming Catholic?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process designed for those who are interested in searching out the Catholic faith.

This process is marked by four stages:

1.  The Period of Inquiry

2.  The Period of the Catechumenate

3.  The Period of Purification and Enlightenment (the Liturgical Season of Lent)

4.  The Period of Mystagogia.

Sessions run from late Fall to the Easter Sunday. The R.C.I.A. community includes the candidates and their sponsors.  In addition to the weekly sessions, there are rites that mark passage from stage to stage. These are celebrated within the parish community at weekend Eucharistic Liturgies. These rites include the Rite of Welcoming/Acceptance, the Rite of Election/Continuing Conversion, the Rites of Scrutiny, and the Rites of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist).
