Rite of Christian

Initiation of Adults

(RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process primarily for adults seeking Full Communion into the Roman Catholic Church through the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist (Holy Communion). Persons of seven (7) years or older are adults in the Church because they are of the age of reasoning, and must be catechized or evangelized. This Ministry of Family Catechesis requires that their parents must accompany these young people. The Process is also open to the Baptized who have not yet received the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist. Persons baptized in other religions also participate in this process, in order to make a Profession of Faith and enter into Full Communion with the Catholic Church.
